When it’s too much

Updated: May 26

Do you ever feel like the weights keep coming down on our shoulder? Me too. I saw so many parenting & teaching posts today talking about the feeling like we can’t get a break from the bad news & anxieties - it’s all just too much to bare.



Today is a difficult day in our area because of #robbelementary

especially for parents, teachers, and children. Sometimes there are few to no words- what helps one person may deepen the dispare or anger in another.

But depending on your perspective…

*we can keep our hearts open ❤️ and arms full 🫂; *prayers 🙏for those who are comforted by them; *action for those who are called 📣to change. AND I will always post resources I come across.
