When It Rains It Pours!!

This past weekend, we had some bad news hit us again. After going through four months of training for my Husbands new job, he was laid off un-expectantly.  It was a job that put a lot of strain on us (he was working over nights and I could not reach him at all for 12 hours a day) but it was a job that we were starting to rely on, and I hate to say, getting used too.

Then yesterday we received a lovely phone call from Ben Jr's school.  A live bullet was found at the high school right down the street from his school.  It was found when a bunch of students from Ben's school were there practicing for a talent show that takes place tomorrow.  The kids in the building at the time ranged from kindergarten to 6th grade.  I may be over cautious but after considering everything from the past couple months and today being only a half day of school, I kept Ben home.  

We received another call from the school today to let us know police presence will be in force at the schools for the time being.

I have been told by some that I am over reacting keeping Ben home today.  With the tragedy in Newtown CT still so fresh in my mind, I just could not bring myself to send him.  

I hate the feeling of being scared to send my son to school, and I wish I could say with all certainty that he will be fine while there, but I know that the parents of the poor children in Newtown thought the same thing.

I will send Ben to school tomorrow, I will still worry non stop, but I will keep my faith in this world and pray that senseless tragedies will not happen again to anyone.

I am sorry to hear about your husband being laid off, but it may end up being a blessing. It sounds like it was difficult for your family. Getting laid off might be God's little shove in another direction.

I understand your worry about sending your son to school. You just have to rely on your faith. We can't go through life being paranoid. Bad things can happen no matter where you go, even at home. I know that it is SO hard not to worry about things, so I will pray for you and your family.

Thank you Cheryl. I really appreciate it. One of my favorite sayings is "God doesn't give you more then you can handle." I am really looking forward to a break though!!

Yes, Sarah, and whatever He does give you, He will help you handle.
