I can't say

I can't say I resent how work is sucking up my life right now. And actually I really don't. I regret not being with my kids, but you know what, I will see them sleeping, breathing in their beds tonight. And right now I am working to try to help absorb some of the impact (media impact, namely) for some parents who won't ever have that joy again.

We lost a student over the weekend. It's such a sad time.

Ana, losing a child is my biggest fear. I can never imagine what a parent goes thru when that happens.

And being a working mom myself there are days when I absolutely hate my job and how I end up pulled in a million different directions and feel like I have nothing left to give my kids. But then I get this little gift - a phone call from one. A voicemail telling me "sorry I wasn't home to tell you bye. have a good night at work mom! by the way, this is tony!" (like I didn't know that! lol!)

And I think - you know, with all that I see at work, I'm so very very blessed. It could all be gone in an instant. You are right, there are parents that will never ever hear from their child again. It just puts things in a whole new perspective.

Hang in there! You're awesome!

I didn't hear anything about this... I will have to check out the papers, but my heart goes out to the family...
