What a week!

This has been a very tough week! Amongst other things that have made this summer particularly difficult, Olivia had shots on Monday. Thus our typically happy baby who sleeps well, has been cranky and having a horrible time sleeping. I am really exhausted! Although she has typically settled down for the night by 7 pm. This week it has been more like 11:30 pm. She still gets up at 6:30 am no matter how little sleep. She has taken morning naps twice this week. Her stomach has been very upset. (as has mine!) Hopefully next week will be better and all the other things that have made this summer horrible, well hopefully that goes away, too!


Peace and Justice issues are a big deal around here!

Let's leave with these quote:

If you want Peace, work for Justice!

and also:

No Justice, No Peace
Know Justice, Know Peace

The news stories that I have heard about people with Down syndrome, getting horrible treatment, just makes me sick! Maybe you have seen them. BC posted a few of them this week from the news. As a Mom to a child with Ds, I know that I have to teach her that there are two kinds of people in the world: Bad and Good. I sure wish I did not have to teach her that, but if she doesn't learn it in a safe environment of home, then she will be hurt horribly as an adult. It is such a sad fact of life! Bad people harm good unsuspecting trusting people.
Lord have Mercy!
