Today’s post is kind of a downer.
- Monday morning I woke up to find out a train had derailed near my commute to work. It’s Tuesday night and the road is still shut down. Something about hazadous material leaking… so I haven’t been at work this week. I have enjoyed the time off, but it’s really not funny. No one was hurt but people have been evacuated from their homes.
- Also… something happened a little ways from here that has me physically ill. There was a horrific headstart bus crash (preschool age children) and two three year olds passed away and several are still in the hospital. I think this has affected me because 1) I’m a human being and 2) my daughter is 2 and I cannot imagine what these parents are feeling. They put their babies on the bus because they needed dependable transportation and then something like this happens and there is no way to explain it. You just wonder, why?
- And of course, there is Hurricane Sandy. Nature has a way of making us all feel uneasy. You can’t prevent it and you are at the mercy of a storm. I just pray that people stay safe! My prayers are going out to everyone suffering through the storm.
- Lastly, my grandpa Joe is on my heart. He has some serious health issues and has been in the hospital since Thursday. It’s really scary seeing him this way and even scarier seeing my mom be so upset. He is my grandfather and I love him so much and want him healthy, but I can’t imagine if it were my dad. Does that make sense? Please keep him and my family in your thoughts and prayers!
Anyway, on a fluffier note. Chris carved Kendall’s pumpkin tonight and she wouldn’t take a picture with it because “it scared me.” Girlfriend is a nut. She is going to dress up tomorrow as Dorothy from the Wizard of Oz for her school Halloween party and trick or treating. I will post pics!
