Warmth regardless of Snow

It's one of those rare mornings ... The schools are closed, so I'm off work.  We had ~ 5" of snow yesterday so of course our town is barely functioning.  The dealership is opening late so Kris didn't have to rush out the door too quickly.  Piper is asleep in her swing and Palmer is watching cartoons.

It's been an emotional morning for me.  I read an article of 2 young parents leaving their 5 month old in his car seat for 8 days until he died.  I couldn't help but cry as I sat on the couch and watched baby girl in her swing and Palmer running around the living room.  What kind of human are you to watch your child waste away, knowing you have the power to keep him/her alive?  It broke my heart for that baby ... he died clenching his car seat strap and with his eyes open.  He was waiting for someone, anyone, to save him.  I'm sure my Savior welcomed him home with arms with open.  I pray for the "parents", if you can call them that.

I'm sure today will be a trying day ... keeping a 3 month and 3 year old entertained while stuck inside.  I'm so thankful that we have a roof over our heads and heat.  The little things really do matter.  We have each other!  My kids are healthy and happy.  What more could a mom ask for?
