One Choice

I was working today when all of a sudden three Seattle Police cars pull up and three officers jump out. They were chasing four teenage kids who had just tagged the side of the Wells Fargo across from my office.

I watched as they caught the kids and pulled them to the ground. These kids are about 13-16 maybe and two of the four looked really scared. I thought about the phone call their parents were about to get. It's a sunny day and their folks are probably working - or maybe not.

I was thinking about my nephew, who I love like my own son, and if I got the call from my sister about something like this. I would be disappointed that one bad choice created a consequence that would now create more issues.

One small choice - one huge consequence. I wonder if it was worth it? The tag is really artistic.

About Me

I work at a Christian School district only 4 miles from my home. The people there are full of grace and love and I am glad to be a part of this ministry. I have a neice and nephew whom I love dearly. They are 12 and almost 15 respectively. I have two amazing sisters and two amazing brothers-in-law. Of course, I would not be here if it were not for my mother agreeing to marry my dad. Good going mom! My parents are my life and I would literally be NOTHING without their unconditional love, support and care. You rock mom and dad. Then there's Will & Lora...their giggles are like sunshine and their parents crack me up too.
