Last weekend….

3 02 2013

I hate putting titles on things. Hence the reason my blog post titles aren’t that exciting.

Anyway just wanted to put some thoughts into writing about last weekend.

So basically it was my birthday weekend, and Philip was supposed to come up here and be here for that. He had kidney stones that didn’t pass so he had his surgery about the time that his flight was supposed to be landing in Lubbock.  I was super bummed but then…

…one of my friends was in a car wreck that was supposed to be at our birthday gathering. Usually when I hear about car wrecks that involves someone my age it’s usually someone I don’t know, or I only heard about it from a friend who knows them personally. This one really affected me because it involved somebody that I knew, and the passenger who died was someone that my friend had told me about so in a way I felt like I knew her.

I went to see my friend in the hospital and a few things that stand out in my mind…

The first thing he said when he saw me was Happy Birthday, and told me that he was going to be there which to me most people who’ve been in a wreck where they were rushed to the hospital they would not have even thought about that, and honestly if you were in a wreck we all understand why you weren’t there.

I ended up listening to his dad talk about what had happened and it sticks out in his mind about how he kept repeating that it was very sad but there is a reason through all of this.

When I was talking to my friend he brought up the female passenger who he knew rather well and the way he talked her death, he focused more on how her family is and he wished she didn’t suffer rather than focus on how all of this will affect him.

Also the girl’s family had visited right before I got there and they told him that their number one priority was him healing. That was amazing to me how they approached the situation without condemnation, anger or bitterness.

Either way it was a weekend that really put into perspective what is important in life to me. I can sit there and feel like Philip not being there is a complete weekend downer or just be glad that he is alive, that he is doing fine and is safe. A girl who didn’t make to my birthday gathering apologized profusely and my thoughts honestly were, it doesn’t matter. You are safe and that is what matters.

At the end of the day I declare, God is good. Next week I plan to return to regular programming of weekly challenges.

Encouraging words mean a whole huge deal to me. I am totally a creeper who saves texts, but I’m getting a new phone tomorrow so I made an email draft with all of my saved ones. I wanted to share with y’all some of my favorites. Some of you will recognize things you’ve said. You may guess who the others are if you so desire.

“I miss you more. I dread everyday I wake up and your not there..”

“I don’t think you are being naive or worrisome. At all.”

“Hey, I really appreciate every thing you do for me and being a great sister. So I just wanted to tell you that I love you… I wanted you to know that.”

“I don’t know that I know any one who has it like you.”

“I know this is random but have I ever told you how thankful I am God had us meet?”

“Sweet dreams cams. You will always mean the world to me. No matter what.”

“A good and clever soul you are. Don’t be a perfectionist”

“You are more than welcome. Thank you for making me look through my Bible.”

“No! I’m not conceited. I just refuse to put myself in a negative light outside my own head :p”

So anyway that’s a sampling of the people that are near and dear to me. I’m hoping soon to get around to writing a thank you to a specific top six or ten. Depending on how I get it working. Btw all the people mentioned in the tags are the people quoted and they are all awesome.
