I was just about to let you in on the pact I made with my kids. I was just about to tell you that we promised each other that we would try harder. Mom would try harder not to yell, Yianni would try harder not to hit & Iliana would try harder not to bite. And you would have probably smiled. But not today.
I can’t think of the right words to describe the unthinkable. There are no words.
I usually moan how living in Greece is difficult. Today I appreciate this country. I appreciate how the unthinkable has not happened here (yet). I appreciate the feeling that I raise my kids in a safe(r) environment.
Today I must forget all of my so called ‘troubles’ and ‘difficulties’. Today, of all days, I must remember to hug my kids as tight as I can & love them like there is no tomorrow. After all, who knows what tomorrow might bring?
