Long Time No Post
When I am stressed and upset I first go to the vacuum cleaner. Maybe its the noise that drowns out the thoughts running through my head. The physical workout and end results of a sorta clean house helps as well. Sitting at the sewing machine losing myself in creativity is another go to stress reliever. Working like a farm hand in the yard...it helps. Well that is unless you do something stupid like messing your knee up :)
Why all the stress? A very good friend was involved in a horrible accident May the 4th. His car was hit by a hit and run driver. He sustained a grave brain injury. leaving him in a coma and on life support.
On May the 9th a miracle happened. He opened his eyes on command. He looked around the room, seeing all 4 of his adult children. He responded when ask if he wanted his wife to stay the night by shaking his head yes, grabbing and squeezing her hand.
The Dr's were astounded. He shouldn't have been able to have any function at all. That was the last response he ever showed. His condition continued to deteriorate.
They police finally found the hit and run van and driver who caused the accident this past Friday evening. Seven hours later Silvio left his family.
The Dr's still say it was a miracle he ever regained consciousness. Yep, miracles do happen. I do believe God blessed this man with one last chance to see his wife and children before going to heaven his new home....
Our hearts are broken for this wonderful family but I find comfort in knowing in every crises in our lives God does give us all blessings.
