1 Year Ago Today

One year ago today, I took the day off of work.
I don't remember the reason.
Maybe I was sick or one of the boys were sick.
Maybe it snowed and schools were closed.
Maybe I just wanted to take a ME day.
I honestly don't remember.

One year ago today, Alex Ross and his familys' lives were changed forever.
One year ago today, Alex was shot in the head by his best friend.

One year ago today, his family was told that Alex had about 3 hours to live.
One year ago today, his mother prayed.

One year ago today, God saved Alex.

Alex will be featured on ESPN tonight at 7 pm.
Alex will be in Tim Tebow’s Documentary,

I want you to take a look at your life right now.
Are you happy?
Could you make your life better?
Y'all all know that this is not my normal post.

Alex and his story touched my life.
I have a magnet on my fridge that says
on it.

I pray for Alex every day.
I'm asking you to do the same.

Pray Until Something Happens.

Excellent is about all I can say. Wonderful post and I do believe in prayer. Even though I have a potty mouth and a bad attitude. Hubby will be watching ESPN so I will watch it also.

I will go read about Alex as that sounds like a sad story!

Thanks for stopping by and telling me about turtle you accidentally hit...that must have been terrible! I feel your pain too! :(

Hope you have a great weekend!
