Life has been crazy the last couple of weeks. I've slept in my own bed 5 times in the last 2 1/2 weeks. At first I was staying with my sister in-laws mom for a little over a week to help her take care of her 94 year old dad who has cancer. That's a long story all in it self, one that I don't think I'll go into on the Internet. ;) Then when I was on my way home to sleep in my own bed for a night or two, I got a call from my brother telling me that the youth leader at church had called and offered to pay for me to go the the youth camp out for the week. So, I did. But while I was there something happened that kinda got me thinking. One of the girls in my small group got a call from her family one night saying that the cancer her brother has been fighting came back. As odd as it sounds, I think I took it harder then anyone else did (besides her of course). I didn't brake down and start crying or anything, but I could have. I couldn't help but think about my brothers when they were talking about hers. I know that probably sounds really selfish, and maybe it was, but while it broke my heart for her and her family, it also broke my heart to even think about something like that happening to my family. I sat there thinking to myself, what would I do if something happened to one of my brothers, how would I handle it? Little did I know that a day later my mom would call me and tell me that my oldest brother had been in a motorcycle accident on his way to work. When I talked to my mom she said that she couldn't get a hold of Ben (who was with me at the camp) and that I needed to find him and tell him what happened. I found Ben and told him what had happened and by 8:00 later that night, we were on our way home. The next day after visiting Simon, mom and I were off to Prinevill to take care of the boys so Mindy could be at the hospital with Simon. So that's where I've been for the last few days. And this is probably where I'll be staying for a while....But, I wouldn't have it any other way. :) Life is good.
