    I had a tough day yesterday and kept telling myself tomorrow will be better. Then my daughter came home from school with a letter that said there has been a Columbine type threat for today. The school has been swarming with police (locker searches & investigations) since Friday. Can't stop worrying which is really hurting my neck and shoulders. Just wanted to talk about it cuz I am home alone all day. Hoping to release some tension. Thanks for listening.

    Hugs, Sheryl

    Isn't it awful to hear news like that from what should be a safe place? I don't know how kids can stand going to school with all the unknowns but then to be the parent at home thinking all is well and something like this comes up - well, it's not good.

    Then there are the many underlying things that we're not consciously aware of that cause us to feel bad. I try to concentrate on good things and realize that what we worry about seldom comes to pass - much easier said than done as I'm one of those people who is very sensitive about EVERYthing.

    I try hard to trust the Lord and look at something on TV other than the bad news.

    It's hard to be home alone all day - I am, so I know how you feel. That's why I'm so glad to have a place like this to come to where I can reach out and someone will reach back to touch me. It's almost like being able to go to a giant coffee shop and see all your friends a few times a day. There's a big connection.

    So I hope it made you feel better to visit here a while today and that your fears and pain will diminish somewhat.
