Newspaper rants and heart attacks

We spent Saturday cleaning the house. While I was cleaning, Drew was reading our local paper, found this in the "Rant and Raves" section and called me over.




Now, when I finished reading it all I could do was stand there with my mouth hanging open. I actually had NOTHING to say. I was shocked. I am amazed at what this world is coming to.
A friend of mine wrote a quote that I just loved. She said, "why do those who know the least, know it the loudest?" Props to Marissa.


I cannot for the life of me wrap my brain around the idea that this person sat there, watched this horrific act that was done to this little creature and did nothing to help.... then wrote (to a NEWSPAPER) about the act and advertised how he/she did nothing to help. After a few days I still have nothing to say about it except to shake my head in disbelief.


Today:


I am grateful for the kindness of the Young Women I go to church with. Tonight while Drew was out and the children were in bed I was doing laundry and cleaning up and my door bell rang. 
I opened the door and I had been "Heart attacked"






Now there was a literal and figurative heart attack that happened. The figurative, because this kind of ring and run where the girls decorate my door with hearts and left candy they call a "heart attack"; the literal being when I opened my door a few of the hearts fell from the door frame and hit my face, scaring the crap out of me. I screamed and jumped backwards and tripped on my boots.
I am grateful for what they did, it was so sweet and made me feel loved, the irony of this is my chest has been hurting for days before this even happened.


I am grateful for service and for how it makes me feel better.


I am grateful for the chocolate that was left tonight. THANK YOU LADIES it could not have come at a better time!!!
