Sometimes, things happen in your life that to cause what seem to be contradicting effects. Such events can simultaneously sharpen your focus, and make it difficult to focus at all.
These incidents can shake your very foundations when you most need to stand firm and be strong. They are even more frightening when they involve your child.

It’s a terrible feeling to second-guess every move you make.
Only time will tell if the decisions I’ve made have been right; and right or wrong, I have to live with it. At least everyone is still alive. So far.
And that’s no small thing.
