Thought of the moment....

No matter how hard you try, you will NEVER control anyone else's attitudes, actions, or outcomes. The only person that you have the ability to directly impact is you, and it is your responsibility to learn how to do just that...to utilize the knowledge, skills, and abilities you have been given to impact the world in the most positive way that you can EVERY chance you get!

Small prayer

One of the hardest things that I had to do was yesterday.
My ex-husband had a mild stoke and I had to tell my son who had just spent an entire week at his house. Tanner had just came home from his dad's on Sunday and they had a great week together. The man is only 44 years old.

They got to him in time and he is making a phenomenal recovery which is fantastic. But even having to tell my son was so hard, because they are so close. That broke my heart watching his heart ache for his dad. I took him up to the hospital and we sat there with his step mom for several hours and his dad woke up and was able to speak, but had some difficulties because of some of the side effects with the right side of his face going slack.

Today all his tests came back normal and it looks like he was very lucky. While we there, we said a prayer with the hospital pastor that comes around room to room and I believe he had an effect on the recovery process. So thank you God for watching over him and my son. Bless you.

Sorry for your troubles, Regina, but glad that it sounds as if everything is going to be O.K.

Parents would love to shield all pain from their children, but sometimes really all you can do is make sure they don't have to endure it alone.

I'm so sorry to hear that. I hope that he makes a speedy recovery. At least he has his young age on his side.

Oh Regina! My heart goes out to you and your poor son...and of course, his father. I hope he makes a swift recovery and I'm sure your son will stay strong. He's got you to lead by example and that's the best he can get!

Regina - my thoughts and prayers are with you and your family! Once again, I haven't been around so just getting caught up, so I apologize for the late response. You are such a strong woman and it's fortunate your son has you by his side to deal with this scary situation. Hope the recovery is going well and life is getting back to normal!
