Offering Hope and Encouragement in the Midst of Sorrow

                                       Volcano of Emotions

Kristy sat in the middle of her front room sobbing uncontrollably. The volcano of emotions erupting from within her would have caused those passing by to wonder what horrible tragedy had struck Kristy's life. The cake decorating kit was nowhere to be found! Kristy had searched every imaginable place in her kitchen and the kit had simply disappeared. With little hope of finding it she sank to the floor in the front room and the meltdown began. The inquisitive eyes of her children peered at her from corners of the room. This meltdown was not about cake decorating, and it wasn't about cluttered cabinets that hid kitchen utensils. It was about a mom who was trying to carry on with family birthday traditions just weeks after losing her husband.
