So, this morning, I did my work shift and things and got home to discover the awful news about Sandy Hook Elementary School.
I was flabbergasted. I was shocked, saddened and stunned. My heart aches and breaks for these families that have lost their precious kids-KINDERGARTENERS.
It was all I could do not to grab my keys and go and get Shrimper from school.
But then I realized-do I just grab him for the sake of hugging him? Do I let him be innocent of this whole tragedy? He’ll hear about it soon enough. And I didn’t tell him I was coming-it would worry him that I just grabbed him to go home. There was no reason not to let him take the bus home and get off at the usual place and the usual time.
So, I waited at the door for the bus to cruise up. I turned down a hockey road trip to wait for my kiddle at the door.
and I hugged him. And got annoyed grunts. Then I turned him over to Doug. Who hugged him. And got annoyed grunts.
and we turned off the news and just watched silly TV shows on the DVR and mad it so there were no worries. Worries can wait.
I’m saddened enough for the two of us.
My prayers and love are with the families of Sandy Hook I can’t imagine what they’re going through. I just want to love on them.
