Just thinking...

I am very grateful today for my healthy children. Last Friday Timo's friend passed out after running the mile in PE. Timo was there to witness it. They ended up life flighting him to Primary Children's because the local hospital didn't know what to do. It turns out this 16 year old boy had a stroke! They put him into a drug induced coma to operate and remove a blood clot. So far they feel it was successful they are planning on taking him out of it this weekend. I can't stop thinking about him and his family. I know what they want for Christmas! I can't think of anything I want that is more important than what I have already! I am so grateful. I pray this young man will make a full recovery but I know that sometimes God has other plans, that with my finite thinking can't comprehend. I can only trust that his will is what is best for each us. And that he will guide us during our most difficult times. So hug your kid before he goes to school, you never know if he'll come back the same!

Oh, I love this. I'm with you, I already have what I want for Christmas. We'll keep this good family in our prayers as well. What is his name?

His Mom was the Head of the City Council in Highland. Nate said she resigned from her position because she needs that time to be with her son and get him through this. Very sad. We've experienced for ourselves that unexpected things happen and you never get your child back the same as they were. We are still grieving that, but so grateful all our children are alive and mostly doing O.K. You are right, it is such a blessing!
