WAW = What a Weekend!

As if the last couple months haven't been enough of a roller coaster! Lord help me to hold on.....This weekend has been filled with joys and pains!

The weekend started out on a painful and shocking note. As I walked out of the lab after work Friday, I heard the most horrible sound! It shook me to the core and I knew something bad had happened. I turned to see that a little 7 year old girl had been struck by a vehicle. From what I could see and was told, the little girl ran out to cross Highway 146 (four lanes and a turn lane) and the lady driving the vehicle tried to stop and was unable to stop in time. I ran back inside screaming, to let my bosses know what happened. Luckily they (my bosses) were able to come to the aid of the lady that struck the girl. Lord have mercy on her. Who expects to experience something like that? She felt guilt, sadness, and worry. I was definitely traumatized by this event. Because I was preparing to go to the Homecoming Football Game - old friends, rooting for the team and supporting my nephew. I definitely had not prepared for this tragic event. The little girl named Savannah was lifeflighted to Memorial Hermann in the medical center. I do not know the status. Just asking everyone to pray for both of these families!

We won the Homecoming game, that was a high time! Especially considering the start to this football season. I was even more excited to see my dear friend Valerie's son Micah crowned Homecoming King.

Saturday morning, tragedy strikes again, as a dear extended family member was beaten and left for dead. Praise God that he is speaking and feeling much better. We thank you for your tender mercies, Lord.

At some point Saturday morning, my dad showed signs of pink eye. Bless his heart. I put some ointment and drops in his eyes which helped. (getting him the doctor Monday). While I was gone to the concert, he also had a little mishap with my little Birthday Twin - between her grabbing hands and a coffee cup. As a result, after returning home, I discovered he has a sore and broken toe nail. He will need lots of TLC, but is feeling better. He is a trooper.

Oh yes the concert on Saturday! We were invited by a dear family friend, Mrs. Linda Johnson to listen to some sweet melodies. I was blessed to witness some soul stirring and spirit filling singing from Ms. Gladys Knight and the Saints Unified Voices Choir! Just amazing. I am telling you, that you haven't heard nothing til you hear Glady's Knight sing "His Eye is on the Sparrow!"  Her testimony was powerfulas well! I am really touched and felt so welcomed by the Church of Jesus Christ of the Latter Day Saints.

At work this morning, just thinking of this weekend. Seems like a long one. Just reminds you that anything can happen. I am going to live life to the fullest!
