I have been pretty honest about what’s been going on in our world and the effect it’s had on us. It’s added pressure. It’s sadness for the family and it’s fear of the unknown. Things have not calmed down, in fact it seems to have gotten worse with no end in sight.
We have tried very hard to keep the kids sheltered from all of this. They are just WAY to young to try to explain this but it’s been hard. When you can’t even let your kids watch TV because the news is always cutting in to show us more looting or violence. It’s beyond troubling.
In light of all of this, the beat goes on. We have to try to not let this rule our lives for the sake of the kids, if nothing else.
So I’ll keep running, because I find solace in it. I’ll keep squeezing and cuddling the best I can because my kids find comfort in it. All the time praying that peace will find it’s way to Ferguson.
Sometimes being an adult is not fun. This is one of those times.
