Remembering Rich's Accident

Hey Everybody,

What a crazy week! I am so thrilled to be sitting on my couch right now, with the rain pouring outside, knowing that my boys and I don't have to be anywhere or do anything today! We have had a week full of baseball games and our year-end testing, and we are pretty well spent!

Something so cool happened during testing, and I want to share it with you. We take three days to do our testing, and it's a fun time for all of us homeschooling families to see each other and also meet new friends. A couple came walking in Wednesday afternoon to pick up their girls, and the daddy was wearing a back brace and walking with the aid of a walker, just like my Rich was ten years ago! I immediately went to meet these people and began talking and sharing with the wife. Oh my, I sure do know how she feels! It is hard to be both momma and daddy, besides worrying about all the "what if's" that are rushing through your heart and mind. We talked and cried together--I was a little surprised how those emotions came so quickly to the surface for me! It was just right there, and felt like it happened yesterday as we shared with each other.

I remember this story. God put you in that gal's path and I hope you ministered to her heart. :-)
