But..........sometimes God reminds us that football, sports, etc. isn't everything (I totally agree!!!)
The same day I had our last post, was the same day that we found out that my sister-in-law Sarah's (Todd's wife) mom had a massive stroke in Wisconsin. She survived the time it took for someone to get help to her but tragically, she passed away last Sunday at age 61. Thursday was her service and tomorrow Todd's family flies back to SC to face life as it is now. This tradgedy is beyond words but our prayers are with the entire family as they use the faith in God that they have to face another day.
In this same period of time, a good friend is watching her mom worsen every day from the effects of MS. Another friend's mom (age 72) fell, broke her ankle, and crawled in the dark to get help. Another friend from church was at a church dinner Saturday night and Sunday morning had no strength in her legs to walk. She thankfully is slowly making progress.
My own Emily had a week long, itchy, awful case of fifth disease and now this week is in her fourth day of some virus and has not been able to keep anything down since Wednesday.
We all have stories to tell of sadness, sorrow, pain and maybe some fun at a Super Bowl Party is what some need to escape reality a little bit but it is also a time to remember that no matter who wins or loses, life goes on.
What a difference a day makes...........
