How's that for alliteration! I wanted to tell you about a good friend of mine from highschool. Back then he stuck out because of his skater haircut and grunge clothes. Today he stands out because of his ability to capture the beauty around him.

I was the lucky winner of a recent raffle he held and won a 20x30 liited Edition print entitled "Light from Above"

I am sitting down to nurse El Bambino, iPad on my lap to go over the daily news. I see an alert on the CBS news app and click it. It's just an update about Obama's Afghanistan speech...scrolling thru the other headlines, I notice 3 with a common theme: Mothers who kill their children. Of course I click and read and am horrified and saddened and just....well, Sad.
I do not understand the mental place one must be in to hurt their children, in one case MICROWAVE a newborn, so severely.
I've been stressed out with the kids and even with El Bambino and beating, shaking or otherwise has never entered my mind.
I am saddened for the pain of the little defenseless one, but also for the mother who went to such a place. For the family members who must deal with the excruciating pain of losing two loved ones.
Last night I heard A recording of Jonas Salk, he asked the question "How do we apologize to our children for our profligate and destructive ways?" It makes me wonder if someone is bargaining with God on our behalf, as Abraham did. How bad was Soddom and Gomorrah before He took action? Are we headed for the same?
I don't mean to sound like a fear monger, but goodness gracious! It certainly seems like things are off the deep end for sure.

I've neglected my blog lately, sorry. It's just that summer is here and our business factor has increased 5 fold.
Of course, I wouldn't have it any other way.:)
It seems as if we are overcome with drama. The two middles are involved in a production of Folk Tales For Fun, a collection of folk tales from around the world. The full four are also attending a drama boot camp that will begin production on Beauty and the Beast Jr., in the fall. El Bambino comes along for the ride and is getting used to the fast pace of life with active teens.
I started working out with Jillian Michaels 30 Day shred. That creates drama of another sort.
Well my few minutes of computer time is up. Time to feed El Bambino and get the other kiddos up for Church.
