It hits home

Monday, December 17, 2012

I know that all over the news is the senseless killing of children and teachers in CT. I was at work when I was told and the whole day we spent just being kinder to our customers and smiling when most of us who are moms wanted to rush home to our child. I am scared about what could happen at my son's daycare since it is connected to a school that goes up to 8th grade. Now I am just tired about hearing about gun laws and banning them. You do that than you might as well prepare for a war with those who will not register a gun. Harder ways to get a gun, yep I am all for that, I just know from what I have learned in classes.

I came home and just hugged my son for over an hour. Just kissing him because I am so blessed to come home to him. My heart aches for those mothers and fathers, along with their families. The ache I feel is nothing compared to them.

I have been so shaken by this that I just haven't kept up track with my weight and that. I just try to figure out where this world started to go to hell? I mean, i don't even remember as a child hearing about this stuff, or worrying about it really in high school. I know that the world today is more selfish, stuck up, and just plan rude. I worry about my son now growing up in today's world.

So how do I go about protecting him? I can't. That's the thing. I need to allow some things to happen to him but be a mother bear where i can protect him. I know about bullying and cyber hate. I know about being threatened and abused, and I know about drugs/sex/and pressure. But now I fear putting my son in school, and prescriptions drugs damaging him, or even being anit social because he is to obsessed with being on the newest technology toy.

I guess this is a downer blog.

    Doesn't it all seem pointless after this tragedy? If an individual can get into a school and create such havoc in all these lives... But God does have a purpose for us even though no one can figure out this thing out.

    For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Jeremiah 29:11
