Keep Calm and Hug Your Kids

Keep Calm and Hug Your Kids

This week has definitely been a crazy week with everything going on in the news.  The people of Boston and Texas are in our thoughts and prayers and I hope that the healing can now begin. I’m not sure what motivates people to commit acts like this but I really liked what Mister Rogers had to say about tragedies like this:

“When I was a boy and I would see scary things in the news, my mother would say to me, “Look for the helpers. You will always find people who are helping.” To this day, especially in times of “disaster”, I remember my mother’s words and I am always comforted by realizing that there are still so many helpers – so many caring people in this world.”

I would like to thanks all the “helpers” of this world…the first responders, police, fire, emergency personnel, volunteers and citizens for their heroism and bravery.

Personally, this has been a tough week for me with the husband working a lot of overtime and our baby boy teething…I love this quote and I wanted to share it with you to kick off the weekend. With all of life’s ups and downs, it is easy to lose sight of what’s important. I sometimes find myself getting frustrated at my husband or baby boy then remind myself of how lucky and blessed I am to have a happy, healthy family.

This weekend I will be giving extra hugs and kisses to my husband, baby boy and our dogs.

Hope you all have a safe and restful weekend!

    Ditto what she said. Hug your kids – and just keep them informed of the important stuff… Skip the rest!
