This morning I was inspired by some words my daughter-in-law wrote and wanted to share them with you. Let me give you some background:
A little over a week ago my son, his wife and two of their friends went out for dinner in Charleston while I stayed with their children. After returning, they told me of a major road block just up from the house. Police cars with lights flashing were everywhere and blocking the road for miles. According to what we could find out, an incident had happened that resulted in a local policeman’s death and the death of the shooter as well. Another officer was taken to MUSC in critical condition. Today was obviously the funeral for the fallen officer…
This is what Lauren had to say:
I was aggravated this morning that I was having to sit in abnormally crazy traffic, but then my heart broke as I passed hundreds of police officers gathered to bury their brother and knew there was a wife inside that church who mourns the loss of her husband and children who lost their daddy too soon. I am very grateful for the officer who was doing his job protecting our city, and very sad for his loss. So thankful that God took a moment out of this crazy day to remind me to be grateful for another day that I get to hug my husband and hold my baby. Life has a way of being so crazy that it's too easy to take the everyday things for granted. -Lauren
I don’t think any other words are needed but just to say, moms, hug your babies and your husband a little closer today and always be grateful for every moment with them.
