It could always be worse..................


Recommended Posts

I have to relay these stories to you because they just go to show that things can ALWAYS be worse that even what WE are facing:

Saturday night when I went to church there were 3 children being baptized. Their Grandma and Grandpa are members of my church and as all the "kids" were home for Thanksgiving they decided to do it all at once. It was so moving, brought tears to your eyes to see the love and pride in these Grandparents faces that 3 of their little ones were coming to the Lord. Well, yesterday " Grandpa" went to take his Mother in Law back to Arkansas where she lives ( maybe 4 hours away from here ) and when he arrived at her home he got out of the car and dropped dead of a heart attack!!!!! No warning, no illness, NOTHING!!!! This family has gone from great joy to great sorrow in less than 5 days!

In Colorado a lady went out to feed and care for her horses and was mauled and killed by a pack of Pit Bulls! Even the experienced EMT's and firefighters who responded to the scene had a hard time with this one.

Just goes to show that NONE of us know how much time we have or when our "Number" will be up. I agree with Ray that we need to live EVERY day like it is your last cause you never know, it could be!

God Bless you all and do me a favor...........call someone you haven't spoken to for awhile, family, friend, old school mate and tell them that you love them. It will make BOTH of you feel good!!!!!

Hi Mo,

Good topic. Your right, there’s always someone that has it worse. That’s what I always tell myself. My father died when I was 9 years old and he was only 40 (heart attack) years old. Never new what it would be like to grow up with a father. Never had a chance to say goodbye. You just never no in life, when are time is up. Only the big Guy knows. We all should enjoy lifte to the fullest. I also have time to do, say etc. things that I would not have otherwise said or done before my illness. And yes I have been calling people I haven’t spoken to for awhile (family, friend, old school mates) to tell them that I miss them and love them. It does make both of us feel good. Peace, take care and God Bless.
