Today I have managed to sleep most of the day. Not only did I not wake up until’ 8:00AM, but I slept in every single period. I slept the entire 3rd, 4th, and 7th periods, and slept for 5 minutes in 5th and just rested in 6th. It was nuts! I’ve been really sick. Once I got home at 3:00, I just came in to my room and slept. Then a few of my friends (Kira and Sara) came over and they brought me orange juice, 2 books, a snickers, a card, flowers, and a new necklace. It was the coolest. I don’t think anyone has done something that cool to me a looooooooooooooooong time. Thanks girls!
Anyway, I woke up 9:00 tonight and have been up for the last hour and a half. I was looking through this kids book that the girls brought me and it had the picture you are seeing to your left in it. It was a really sad picture. Some of it’s meaning to me is really hard to explain. You see, my nephew has been in the hospital. He had a severe asthma attack and now he’s been in and out of a coma, and all this stuff. But the latest news has been the hardest to take. You see, my nephew is like me. He loves sports, likes to get outside and play, but now they have said that he is blind. Blind. What a thing to say to a 10-year-old. “..You can’t play baseball anymore, you can’t go run around like you used to.. here’s your stick.. make it through life..” It hurts me to think of these things. It really allows me to take a look in to my life and say, “.. geeze.. compared to what Ashton (my nephew) is going through.. it’s not so bad..” but the problem I see there is the fact that, I WISH I WASN’T SAYING THAT! you know? I wouldn’t be saying that if it didn’t happen, and of course I didn’t want that to happen. But at the same time, God is in control. God can do whatever he wants with his own stuff. Why would I be the one to judge his decisions?
Sorry so serious, but that’s just life for me at the moment.
