God above knows how greatful I am to have the life I have.
I was dropping off stuff at Goodwill...(The same Goodwill I shop at lol)
And then we drove through an apartment complex on our way to walmart.
It was a poorer area of town.
Noticeably so...kiddy cars parked on hot concrete slabs right next to the roadway.
The only grass was weeds peeking up through cracks in the pavement....
Sheets over windows.
Sophie said "Do kids really live and play there?"
I said "Yes, they do.'
She said "That's sad."
It is. While my minivan may be missing it's gas cap flippy thingy and have a crushed muffler...My daughter has a yard to play in and quiet streets to ride her bike on...
She is also healthy, as is my oldest.
today I was exasperated because she kept begging to be outside....She got a sunburn yesterday from laying out. I told her No...not after 8.
Then I read http://www.prayingfornoah.com/2011/06/sad.html
I don't even have words.
I had a good day, I ate right...I exercised...
I watched my daughter ride her bike..my oldest complain about the headset and the fact that we are down to ONE computer.
And I was exasperated because my kid wouldn't stop playing.
