Our 2-week holiday in Dallas officially came to an unexpected halt last night. The most surreal and unimaginable episode happened. Suddenly, things fell into proper perspective. None of the material things matter in life as long as my family is safe and in good health. I am grateful that God has blessed me with a steadfast and loving husband and an amazing son.
I don't know if I could ever write about what happened last night. I did find another mom who went through the same ordeal and she put into words exactly how I felt. I'm sure she wouldn't mind that I'm sharing her story here.
To my mom friends, please do take time to read her story. I don't wish this on anyone but it is best to be well-informed and prepared.
