Day 158 - importance of playing
over the last couple of days we have found ourselves playing more. there is something so comforting about play. i realized tonight as i was kissing the kids good night how important the act of play is for our family, health and just plain well being. conversations, laughter, togetherness all happen in the midst of playing. this week has been a difficult week with lots of processing, hugging, praying and playing as our family along with so many others are coping with the loss of a precious little boy and the experiences surrounding the tragedy. dave and i both in the midst of so much grief, heartache and doubt have experienced humanity at it's best - as we have watched a community come together to support the family, children and parents.
