We live in a world where kids not only practice fire drills and tornado drills, but they also learn to turn off the lights and hide in the corner.
Where the price of groceries keeps going up, but most companies haven’t given raises in years.
Where technology has given us more than all its benefits, but also more ways we can hurt others.
Everywhere you hear people talking about how bad things are, how they’re sure it’s all coming to an end.
And then I look around my kitchen…
And I see Batman giving Lalaloopsy a ride in the Batmobile.
And I’m thankful for what we have, for where I am. For the innocence of children.

There is so much truth to this. Sometimes I turn off the news and just cuddle the kiddos a little closer. Not to shut out the world and pretend it doesn’t exist, but just to let the innocence of a child soothe my soul.
That’s it, exactly!

I absolutely love this post. LOVE. Thank you for blessing me today. There is something so lovely and true within the words you chose to share. 🙂
I’m glad I was able to touch someone by today’s post. I seem to be surrounded by those that think we are headed to some awful times…and I just want to forget it all and surround myself with my children’s innocence.
