Finals Week

As I sit here in my classroom and help all these amazing kids get ready for finals this week my heart is sad and heavy. I have prayed and cried for the families in CT that lost loved ones on Friday. I know first hand the lose of a child can be so overwhelming and completely deplete your soul to the core. I did not lose my child in a tragedy such as this but I do know the feeling of waking up one morning and by the middle of the day your world shattered and you have to go home without your child.I prayed today that we as teachers, parents, and all adults have the ability to let these children who have seen these horrific events are aloud to talk about how  they are feeling and that we have the correct answers that do not make the fear worse. The 23 little souls that went to be with the Lord on Friday are looking down on us.... They are now happy, safe and have no memories of what happened to them. Only we are left to grieve them. We had a very uneventful weekend in our house and the TV was not on very much. My children has school Christmas parties they went to and spent some much needed down time with their friends. It was James birthday on Friday and we went to dinner on a date.. and Saturday we went to my dads house and spent the day with him.I know that on Tuesday the custody papers will be filed and all the other crap will be over. I know that I could care less if I get anything else for CHRISTmas other then my children HOME with me all the time........This week is going to be crazy hectic but Friday my best friend will be here and all will be right in my world.......I pray you all have a Merry CHRISTmas and the Your Santa brings you everything you have been wishing for.......

May peace be with all of us as educators and parents and may we all do everything in our power to keep our kids safe......AMen
