I am DEVASTATED…
Let me give you guys a little history…so you will understand.
My #1 son, the first born, has always had a special place in my heart. I was in labor over 36 hours after being 2 weeks overdue. Had an emergency C-section..etc.
Anyway..he was my STAR athlete…and I mean that seriously.
In football he was the one who caught the winning pass to score a touchdown in the last 16 seconds of the game and pushed his team to a district win.
In baseball he hit more grandslams than I can count. In fact he walked on to the HS team without trying out (and that year they won state). Scouts galore were “watching” him.
Well..his junior year( after he made 2nd team all state in football with a broken collarbone) he found out about girls…and then the sports went down the tube.
Long story short..I was soon to be a very young grandma.
So he quit all sports and graduated HS by the skin of his teeth. They married and did the “right thing”.
Fast forward to 2006. He is now married several years..with 3 kids. His youngest, my angel, has Down’s Syndrome (but believe it that is a blessing and a future post) . He wakes up one day and thinks…DAM... I am gonna be 26 years old soon..and I have no career.
So..February 2006 he enlists in the Army ( in the middle of a war). He gets a great MOS…medical equipment repair..AKA the fixer of the MRI and CAT scans. And off to basics…
During basics…he mucks up his knee (torn ligament ) and breaks a rib. BUT…he is a trooper and graduates.
So Daughter-in-law and grand kids put their house up for sell..no bites until today.
THEIR HOUSE SOLD…so they are moving in 10 days. And thus the DEVASTATION!!
I knew this was coming..but everything is happening so fast..
Please pray for them and me…I need a shoulder to lean on…
