what's a mother to do... when it's not her kids?

today a video shows up in my fb feed that made my heart cry out for the kids involved.  what's a mother to do?  if they were my kids, i'd want to know.  don't get me wrong... i wasn't exactly miss perfect in my high school days.  that's probably why i feel so heartbroken for those kids.  from the perspective of a middle aged woman, i see them crying out for attention and love.  they need more than just "things" in their life to feel worthy of living.  how does one reach out to them with the ever-lasting love of Jesus Christ?

will have to pray about what response i can make.

on another note: the chill in the air has made a perfect day for tidying up the home front while keeping the home fire burning...

random note for emma: no new injuries to report ;)

another random post for the day... a picture of dad and me taken at 8am, right before leaving the warmth of the truck and heading out to our hunting spot for opening day duck season.  we owned the camo!

this is a fine place to sign off for the day   :)

why a blog?

1. emma says an "injury of the day" blog is needed - none to report today

2. lois says a photo/craft project blog is needed - also none to report today

3. sometimes i have something to say about nothing and to no one in particular - today's creation of a blog is the successful attempt to avoid working on boy scouts, ignition and housework.  but that only works for so long... now i must start on the house work to avoid writing anything worthy of reading on my blog.  it's a vicious circle.
