This week my uncle past away, so death was already on my mind when the school shooting happened. But it put things into perspective for me. My uncle was able to see his children get married, meet his grandkids.
The high school students were barely starting to make decisions about their adult lives, they were still babies.. THAT is what hurts my heart. They hadn’t yet lived life to their fullest potential.
As a parent of two young kids, the images on T.V broke my heart. I was sobbing and thinking of the parents that would not be able to hug their children one more time.
We aren’t big on Valentine’s Day but we do celebrate our anniversary since it’s the same day. We decided we wouldn’t celebrate, we laid on our bed with our babies and watched t.v., ate candy and just LIVED that moment. Sometimes we take life for granted, work and pay bills, parent and all that stuff that being an adult comes with, but maybe we should be more like children. Ask questions, run around, have FUN, enjoy the moment.
