A little over a month ago I wrote about losing my cousin a year ago. It was a very hard time and we as a family are still dealing with the loss to this day. Obviously, this is not something that is just cured overnight. Unfortunately yesterday, my other other cousin, Tyson’s brother, was in a similar accident. He is in very serious condition. At this point he is stabilized and the doctors are ‘cautiously optimistic.’ He has had his right hand up to his forearm and his right leg amputated. The next few days will be crucial.
I was in Las Vegas with my husband when I got the call from my mom. We were planning on going out for a nice dinner for my birthday. Obviously this puts a damper on things, and we decided to come home. I needed to see my babies.
Things like this put your life in perspective, don’t they? What are you living for? Why are we here? What is important to me? I believe that God has a purpose for everything and although we might not fully understand why he chose to take Tyson from us last year or to allow this to happen to Timmy this year, we do know that He is in control. He did choose to let it happen. And all we can do at this point is pray that Timmy is okay. Pray that the Lord can open our eyes to His will and purpose. Pray for the doctors that they will have wisdom in his surgeries. And pray for the families.
I know that religion is a touchy subject to some people, and I understand that. I don’t want to be a weird Christian person that pushes my religion on other people. I do, however, believe that Jesus Christ is Lord and that he died for our sins so we can be with him in heaven. I don’t feel like I should have to cover that up or hide it, because this is a part of who I am. And when something like this happens, I am thankful that I have that to lean on. I know that no matter what happens in this crazy thing called life, I am in His hands. I am taken care of. And he loves Timmy, Tyson, Lavar, my kids, more than I do, more than I can imagine. And boy does that make this a tad bit easier.
So if you pray, pray for my cousin. Pray for the doctors. Pray for the families, specially his wife and three kids who will be the most affected. And then for his parents who lost their other son just last year. Any support is so much appreciated, I can’t even tell you how encouraged I am by your words. Thank you so much.
Have a blessed day
