It may not be entirely within the scope of things we talk about around here, but it seems impossible not to acknowledge the news from Uvalde this week. I sense the tension in your posts and comments. And I very much feel it too.
As moms, our first instinct is always to protect our kids. It isn’t easy to feel helpless. Our hearts are broken, and it is hard to function when everything hurts.
I normally have a lot of words, but this week, I don’t. I have no interest in pretending to offer solutions or comfort. I just want to say that it’s okay if words don’t come this week. It’s okay if tragedy makes you angry or scared or heartbroken or all of those things at the same time. In fact, it should. Sit with it, but don’t stay there.
If you need a place to unload, my inbox is open. We hear you, and we’re feeling this too.
Love your babies.
