I Want To Live In A Bubble

I have strong moments and I have weak moments.

Listening to the news doesn't help me, that's for sure.

Hearing about missing students, missing children. Almost always girls, young women. Gone. Their parents let them go play, go for a bike ride, walk to school, and then they're gone.

The evil that decides to "do away with" what some parent has put their entire life "into".

I think of all the days and nights that I have worked for the betterment of my children. To make them strong, smart, productive. Being a parent is serious business and my goal is to help shape my child into a positive force in the community. A benefit to the World. The very thought that evil could take that away when they see fit makes me ill.

I wish we could live in a bubble. I wish that evil didn't exist and we could just 'Be'. I wish.

I have strong moments and I have weak moments. This is a weak moment.

  1. No doubt. Being a parent opens you up to strong vulnerability.

    Stand strong and live! It goes by so fast...try to keep these weak moments from stealing your joy.

  2. It's so damn scary what's happening these days. But I always ask myself, was it like this when I was a kid and we just didn't know about it because of less media hype? At 8 years old I'd leave the house in the morning, make the rounds to my friends and sometimes wouldn't be home till dinner. And mom didn't worry!

  3. I totally understand! There is so much bad on the news. Sadly some of the evil comes from within the "bubble" for some of the children. I try and teach Tara to use her best judgement always and go with her gut.... lately we've been in a bubble though and we are rarely apart, with homeschooling and me not working.

  4. I'm in Northern California, very close to where alot of that current news if coming from. Extremely frightening and incredibly disappointing that our justice systems isn't doing more to protect us. It's been on my mind alot lately too. Because, unfortunately YOU NEVER stop worrying about your "kids". My daughter is 25 and I think I worry more about her now than I did when she was a kid living with me!

  5. I know turning off the TV is just sticking my head in the sand but I do it anyway. I'm naturally a nervous person and having children has increased that 10 fold for certain.

  6. I feel that. It's terrifying sometimes, that we live in a world like this.

    But remember "All it takes for evil to flourish is good men to stand by and do nothing."

    It's apathy we have to fight.

  9. I hold my breath every day all day long. I am only at peace when they are all tucked in their beds and even then I don't rest easy.... I worry.

  10. I do not think this is a weak moment. I think when you feel like something is not quite right and don't react to it is a weak moment. Remember to always trust your gut.
