Life Can Turn On A Dime

Case-in-Point #1: I am home alone tonight. Spencer is at school, Bri is with a friend, and the other children went to YM/YW activities. Remember when I longed for just a few minutes to myself? I sure do. And now.... Here I am. Alone.

Case-in-Point #2: A 19-year-old young man in our ward, the oldest child of friends, was hit by a Trax train last night. He is in critical condition in a drug-induced coma due to head trauma. If he lives he will spend months in rehab re-learning to walk and talk and do every other little thing.

All in all, I think I will enjoy my quiet evening, and pray hard that everyone comes home safely.

That is so sad. It does make you appreciate what you have. These kind of jolts sure do wake us up when in the stupor of everyday life.

We heard about him last night as well. It hit Cole hard since he was friends with him. It makes me love EVERY minute with our amazing kids. I was going to tell you how proud I am of Tay on Sunday. You have raised some amazing kids!

Yes it can. And hopefully most of those turns are for the better.
