Yeah for me, I did my tasks yesterday!!! Dusting, hoovering and some ironing!!! Today is shopping day and later some cooking, meat that has to be on the stove for several hours.
I just came from Snowy's blog and read some WONDERFUL news thee! Although real slow, Erik is making progress! And the most wonderful is..........bo........ I will leave that. Read it yourself on Snowy's blog, but it's happy news after a long time of fearing, hoping and such.
And oh whee, did you know that Minky's blog had it's 1st anniversairy? I didn;t but most funny is that Minky herself did forget about it, being soooo busy with her Christmas party and a lot of things. So congrats to you Minky, you made a very special place in cyberland, or better said. sveral special places LOL. Thanks for being such a lovely, warm-hearted, really special person!
So reading a bit of this happy news should brighten up your day!
But as always, when there is good or happy news, also on the side there is less good news. It was on the news bulletin and it is something aweful. A guy, working in a daycare for really young children, from 1 1/2 to 4 or 5 year) seemed to have abused at least 40 or 50 in a real bad way, they confiscated his laptop and he had protected it real heavy but police encrypted it now and it appears he had hundreds or thousands of pictures of really young children, was involved in a pornosite etc,etc,etc. he already confessed a numer of abuses but it could e only the top the mountain! The guy is 27 years old !
This is uncomprehensible! It is really a big case here and I suppose at least the next few days there will be more about it on tv. But can you imagine a grown man abusing children that young? It isn't really clear yet how far the abuse was going, but we can assume it got as far as you can imagine.
He also was sometimes baby sitting at home of some of the children, nobody suspected him from anything, he really had the confidence of parents! Even he wanted to start his own daycare!
When I hear these kind of things, I really feel sick, you know. How twisted his mind must be to be able to do this kind of thing? Well, the case will be followed on tv as I said, but I think it will take a long time before it will come to court, cause police has to investigate so much material and it seems there is another guy involved in it and probably even a women.
It may even be in some newspaper or so in America, cause the whole case started from a tip from oveerthere.
I hope this guy will be put away for the rest of his life!
Let us just forget for a while this terrble news and jump over to your freebie. This kit was inspired for a great deal by Eriks and Snowy's situation, as you could figurre out by the name of it: "Never Give Up Hope".
And we shouldn't, although it is hard sometimes to have hope. And I know, in some situations there is no hope left anymore, but for the times there is just a sparkle of it left, we should hang on to that with all our heart!
That said I wish you all a hopefull day in good spirit!
