Today I am thankful it is Friday and I am able to have a sleepover with my babies.
Today I am thankful for the rain because it makes the neighborhood in which I live lush and green.
Today I am thankful that I am healthy.
Today I am thankful I am in love.
Today I am thankful my babies are alive.
Today I am thankful for my home.
Today I am thankful for the blessings that God has given us.
Today I am thankful to be here.
This week, evil reared its ugly head again in a way that I cannot understand. Families were torn apart, lives were shattered.
I think of my small, sweet babies, and I kiss their heads as I wake them up every morning and I thank God for their lives. I thank God for every breath they take and I Thank God for allowing me the joy of being their mother.
I feel sad for the mothers of the children that died. I feel sad for the lives that were forever changed this week. I feel sad for the broken, lost little boys they must have been. What is happening in this world that causes sweet little children to grow up and one day imagine destroying lives? What do we do to stop the evil from destroying our babies?
