Sometimes A Mommy's Heart Hurts

Being a mom is such a joy, but with joy sometimes there is also sadness. The other day I was driving the girls home from school and Roni was telling me about her day at school.  She told me that her teacher had them practicing in case a "bad guy" came into the school.  They were to stay in their classroom, turn off the lights, draw the blinds, lock the door, be quiet and hide."  As she spoke my heart began to break a little - actually a lot.  By the time I got home I was crying.  

The worst part for me is that the actions of sick people are robbing my precious daughters of part of their innocence.  But like my former sister-in-law said, "It's love, not fear, that's going to save the world."
