Have you guys read about that 4 year old kid that shot his babysitter? Apparently the 18 year old babysitter accidentally stepped on his foot so he shot him. Shot him! Grabbed a gun and shot him. I am in disbelief. What could be going on in this child's mind to think that he could just reach and get a gun and shoot? What could have happened to him or around him in his short life to think that this is ok? Can you imagine what the future holds for him?
I have noticed that a lot of people have indicated that they feel 2009 will be a really good year. I so hope they are right. This country needs a good year don't you think? I have a lot of hope for this year. There will be good things to happen and there will be bad things as well. But, in all honesty, since I have learned to live my life with gratitude it makes it a whole lot easier to get through the good and the bad. It really is amazing how it has changed my life.
So, as the days turn into weeks and months of 2009 let's all try to be thankful for what we have instead of what we don' t have. Just give it a try and see what you think. Who knows? It could just change your life forever.
