Absent, yet again....

  Yes, once again.. I have been absent.. However, we had a real scare this past month... My oldest, the one who was so proud of the homecoming mum he had made for his date.. Well, he suffered a serious concussion during the homecoming game and we have been pretty busy with doctor's appointments all month long.... He is doing so much better.... He still has no memory of homecoming game... However, considering he had lost about a three year time span for about three-fours hours.. we are very happy for this small glitch...

  He still has a little ways to go before he is medically cleared. He obviously has to give up the rest of the football season and has been on the annoyed side, since his driving has been restricted... But, he does know how lucky he was and how much worse things could have turned out. The Lord was definitely watching over him that night...

  For those not aware... That same night another young man actually, lost his life from the EXACT same injury that my Jacob had received.. The scary thing is.. This young man was the same age, height, weight, position and had incurred the exact same type of hit my son took..... Both were hurt in the third quarter of their game and on both teams, the coaches viewed footage and could not figure out exactly where the 'HIT' took place. I thank the Lord each night that we were so fortunate and so blessed. At the same time, my heart and prayers go out to the family who lost their son that night.

  We go through life and hear about other's losses and never imagine that it could happen to us, until it does....

   LOVE your family, let them KNOW you love them each and EVERY day.... Be thankful for all the blessings in your life.. Because, there is always someone out there who is not as fortunate as you..

  I know this is not a creative post.. But, I just wanted to share with you how thankful I am for everyone and everything in my life... We take life for granted most of the time.....

  Go out today and enjoy the warmth of the sun, the smell of the flowers left this late in the season, the smell in the air as the seasons change, and most of all.... Hug your family and let them know how much they mean to you....
