I need some happy today!

For once it's not my family that's causing me distress. Everybody's good!!! I got the CD of our pictures in the peach blossoms & I love them! I'll post some another day. Because...

Today has been a rough one. Luke Campbell, a senior at Sassy's school, passed away this afternoon after a 2 year battle with cancer. His niece was one of Sassy's good friends & when he was at school, he always made a point to pay some attention to Madison & her friends.

Sassy's school is a small private school with strong Christian values. The students prayed for Luke every morning. And most of Luke's classmates have been in school together since Kindergarten. This is going to be a hard pill to swallow.

I was at the school most of the day today & every time I time turned around something made be tear up. I got to know his mother pretty good through Madison & I can't, DON'T want to, imagine what she is going through. It was bad enough when Baby Girl had to be put in the hospital.

And then after getting the call about Luke, I got a call from a good friend. The kind you never want to get, especially from your friend. She had to have her husband arrested & put in jail for domestic violence this afternoon. I was shocked! to say the least. He choked her, pointed a gun at her & threatened to kill her. She got the hell out of there.

To top off all that drama, my BFF's mother was held at gunpoint during a robbery at her office this evening. She works at a loan company. How awful is that!

So here's me some happy. I think I'll make this my summer theme song.

I am so sorry about your day. That was a catchy little tune! I have had lots going on here my way, as well. I am just comforted by the fact that even though things may get tough, God will never give me more than I can handle. Keep the faith and just hug your own children even tighter and tell them that you love them. God will take care of you and things will get better. Love & blessings from NC!
