Count your blessings

Today is one of those days that really make you stop and thank God for what you have. I spoke to a young woman who lost her husband on Friday and found out today that she is pregnant: A mom whose hiv+ child now has full blown aids. A local boy died last night, his young body fished out of a pond this morning. He was only 15 years old. Another boy, 17 years old, has been missing for over a month and it kills me to think what his family must be going through right now.
My kids are happy, healthy and warm. I know where all three are right now and I cant wait for this shift to be over so I can go home and hug them, a little tighter maybe, but I need that today.
