I have been working hard to stay off social media. Well I don’t know if working hard is accurate, but it makes sense. It’s too distracting for me. I get absorbed into the world and their news. Mentally distracted by frivolous posts and memes.
I did hear of an 11 year old boy who was hit in a crosswalk yesterday across from the school parking lot. It ended up being a younger impaired driver who stayed at the scene. He’s now in jail and a family’s life is ruined with the loss of their young son. You never know how fast life can end. I woke in the middle of the night after having a nightmare. A dream where I found Ian in the street after being hit by a car. A policeman was there helping him, but seemed overwhelmed and sad himself. For a moment I was in that scene. I could feel a touch of the pain and it was too much to bear. I am grateful for life and for my kids. I am grateful for my husband and my family.
