Ok, so it's been a while since I've posted anything of substance. I promise, I am not a shallow girl who only cares about reading Twilight! :)
On a more serious note...I don't know if any of you have heard of "Baby Grace" or not, but I was reading an article about her today stating that the parents admitted to torturing and killing her. She was only 2 years old. Her body was in a storage bin that was found by a fisherman. This was in Galveston, TX. That is the beach I went to as a teenager. Her parents live in the town I grew up in (Spring, TX). I could actually picture the place where she was found. After reading the horrid details of what happened to the little girl I had to stop and take a minute to be grateful for my children and that they are in a safe and loving home.
There is too much unimaginable abuse and pain in this world and if it wasn't for our Savior and the Atonement, I think I would be constantly depressed. But instead I have hope. Hope that people will choose to do the right thing. Hope that the victims' suffering will end soon. Hope that someday, somewhere, those victims will know what it feels like to be loved and be happy.
I am so grateful that I grew up in a loving home, with parents who sacrificed for my welfare and who strived daily to teach me what is right and loved me unconditionally.
