Happy Labor Day! Today we visited my parents and tried to soak up the last bit of "summer" - and it felt pretty nice to disconnect.
I've been feeling so heavy and guilty after #hurricaneharvey; so many have lost so much, if not all, and I don't think I've hit the point where I feel like I've done, helped, given all that we can. This will need to be a continual effort to keep giving and doing MORE. It's been exceptionally hard trying to explain this to a 3yo who has seen some of the media coverage and is asking about babies and if they're okay and where people go to the bathroom when they're surrounded by water and if they're going to be okay and she's picking up pennies or change she finds and wants to give it to the people living in all the water. Y'all... 😭
I feel utterly helpless knowing how to put this into terms she can grasp because for hours after bedtime one night this week, her mind kept spinning and the questions kept coming. And so we prayed over and over again.
