After enjoying St. Valentine’s Day and being given the wonderful opportunity to be an Extraordinary Eucharistic minister and also administer ashes at our all school Mass last Wednesday, I felt kind of numb with the news on all evening watching coverage of the events in Parkland, Florida. “Not again,” I kept thinking to myself. As parents and educators, and no matter how hard we are on our children, there is one thing that never changes, we always love them. No matter how rough of a morning we have had trying to get everyone out of the house, how big the “battle” is over breakfast or the last minute homework assignment that was forgotten, or how crazy the afternoon might become, there is always time to tell our children that we love them.
