Hug Your Babies

I received a call early this morning that a close family friend lost their youngest son in a car accident.  He was married with two kids...just like me.

I was in complete shock and still am.  I dropped what I was doing and headed straight to my boys.  I squeezed them so tight and then just cried.  How can I protect them from the world?  Can I escape having to live through something so awful?  My first thought was to lock them both up and throw away the key but this just won't work.  It's not realistic and not fair.  Instead, I'm going to love them each and every day, a little bit more than the day before.

Its been really heavy on my heart lately that I need to unplug and focus on what matters most to me.  Facebook can wait as can my email and work too.  My life needs to revolve completely around the loves of my life: Kevin, Parker and Cooper too.  They are what matters and they should be the only thing that really counts.

When its all said and done, I want my sons to look back and remember how much I loved them and how involved I was in their lives.  Sorry Facebook, you just can't give me what my family gives me.  The same goes for you work, besides, you're not nearly as entertaining as my loves.
