A Moment to Pause and Appreciate Our Children

There's been a lot of negativity in the news, what with the tragedy in Newtown, Connecticut dominating our collective consciousness.

A good friend on Facebook posted Buzzfeed's "26 Moments That Restored Our Faith in Humanity This Year" and #8 caught my attention.

It features two parents who got insulin pumps tattooed on their bellies so that their diabetic child would feel better about his real pump.

Read the whole, heart-warming story here. It's actually dated back in December 2011, but I think it is still important to read life-affirming things when so many of us are focused on tragedy.

Our thoughts and prayers go out, this holiday season, to the families of Newtown, Connecticut.
