I am so sad about the world sometimes…especially today. I live in a beautiful part of Houston, Texas that until recently had as close to zero crime as is possible. I know it is so cliché to say, but it is becoming so true – crime is rising because of the economy. My area of town is experiencing some crazy stuff and I hate to see it happening. Banks are being robbed, people (especially young ladies) are being abducted in the middle of the DAY from popular shopping centers and it makes my heart ache to hear these news stories. I hate to think of it this way but sometimes you just have to be honest with yourself – the world we live in now is NOT LIKE it was even when we were kids, a mere decade ago. It makes me mad that you can’t even feel completely safe in your home town anymore. I have lived in this area my entire life and have always felt safe until recently.
But what can you do?? I WILL NOT live in fear everyday and instead will really try to focus on putting my trust in God – it is all you can do. I have been looking into getting a security system which is something I have never considered before. What I WILL do is be happy and be thankful for every day I have on this Earth! We are all so blessed…
Ladies, stay safe and stay happy!
