Life Style: Christmas is in the air
We had a few Christmas activities this past weekend. My sister, mom and I drove to Galveston with the boys on Friday afternoon, to visit the Festival of Lights at Moody Gardens. The lights were amazing and they had such fun activities all throughout. On Saturday, our neighborhood had a kid's Christmas party. The boys took pictures with Santa Claus, made balloons with Mrs. Claus, decorated cookies, rode the train and wrote another letter to Santa.
As I sit here and write about our great weekend with our family, I can't help but feel so devastated for the families who lost a child or loved one on Friday. I still can not believe this happened! I think my mind goes into shock, that something so heartbreaking could happen to innocent children and adults. The only comfort I find is knowing these precious children are in Heaven with Our Heavenly Father. I pray for all those affected by this devastation, and truly pray for God's peace to surround this nation that needs it now more than ever. I hope we all choose to remember the heroes of this story: all the children, teachers and administrators.
