Family

I read a site that Casey sent me a link to tonight about the story of a baby who was shaken and severely injured by a nurse. I had such a strong reaction to it... if anyone every did anything to hurt Casey or Madison or Emma I don't think I could control myself. That person better hope that the police got to them before I did... I may not be a big guy by any means but I can tell you the outcome wouldn't be good. Vigilante justice isn't the right thing to do but I just know that I wouldn't be able to handle it the right way without someone intervening. Even though it wasn't my child I was reading about I immediately got angry when I read it.

Things are going well here in Minneapolis with work, but I miss home more than anything. I was frustrated because it seemed that I wasn't able to be effective yesterday due to a situation that wasn't in my control. If I wasn't going to be able to help I didn't know what the use was of taking me away from home for a week. However, today the situation was resolved and things have dramatically improved. At least since I know that I'm able to fulfill my purpose for being here I can get some satisfaction out of the trip. I don't mind flying, I don't mind the idea of travel itself, only the fact that I'm away from my family gets to me. It gets to me enough to make me want to avoid travel whenever possible. I really like my job and I want to do whatever is necessary. I really like the extra satisfaction of how productive I can be working directly with the team here. But, it doesn't even touch the scale of satisfaction I get for just being with my family on even the "worst" days.

I couldn't imagine what I would do if that happened to one of my girls. I am so thankful our girls are safe and healthy. I will pray for that sweet innocent baby.
