Joey had a little accident yesterday, he was not hurt nor anyone in the car that hit him. But it shook him up. To know Joey you know he is kind, enabling(LOL), tough, ornery sometimes, but has a tendency to feel sorry for people. He was doing some work for the County and was backing out on a road close to home and a young mom came around the corner, going way to fast, with the sun directly in her eyes and was on the wrong side of the road and she nailed Joey in the back of his work truck. Thanks goodness it was the ole white truck because it is tough, hardly did any damage to his vehicle but totaled hers. He never saw her coming, but when she hit, it scared him to death. Then he gets out and all he hears is a child crying and the mom gets out of the car and says please don't call the cops I will go to jail. He told her first lets check on the little girl that was headed to Midway Elementary (late),but he told her that he had to call. To put it into quick details, no license, no registration, no insurance, tags on wrong car, child not in required car seat, child sitting in the front (5 year old). She got about 7 tickets and was told if she did not show up in court she would go to jail. Of course, my enabling husband starts feeling bad about calling the cops, so my son who is so much like me its scary, says that is why our insurance is so high is because of people like her. I find out that to fix our truck, our insurance will sue her, which Joey won't do, like he said how do you get water out of a dry well. He was much more concerned over the child, he said the mom was all messed up about calling the cops, so he went and sat in the car with the little girl and asked questions about school, teacher and Disney Princesses. He said last night, that little girl doesn't have a chance in the world unless God intervenes. Dad still home in the bed, Josh thought Mom was druggie, and we wonder why the world is the way it is. This is their normal. This is how they view life on this earth. We look at it and say what is wrong with these people and they don't think anything is wrong with the way they live and they are raising two children to see the world through their eyes. I hope since Joey was kind and told the mom that God was looking out for them that day, that they saw a glimpse of what life could be like with effort on their part.

My second grandchild will be a boy!!!YAH!!! Josh said the other day, I was kinda of hoping for a boy because I don't know if I could love another girl like I do Harper. I told him you can but I see and know what he was meaning. They have a very special relationship, one that I am jealous of. He has always thought of her as a little person and treats her that way, this comes with good and bad. She thinks she is an adult and can make adult decisions so of course this is their battle. But her confidence is so high and I attribute that to she feels very loved, especially by her Daddy. Children need to know that they are special in their parents sight. Josh said he watch two documentaries this week and had night mare after them, Ted Bundy and the Natalie & Jordan Vanderslute story. He said that in about all cases of serial killers the one common denominator is they either don't have a Dad or have a abusive Dad. That is why the Bible and God put so much responsibility on Men. I read this week in my Bible Study that David told Solomon on his death bed. " Be strong, show yourself a man, walk & follow all of Gods commands & laws." Todays society could be a much strong society if men would take the responsibly that God intended for them. So now with another male coming into this world he needs to be taught, to love the Lord with all your heart, soul, mind and strength. To cherish his wife and take care of her, to love and teach his children the ways of the Lord, and be kind and respect human beings. If everyone would teach just one child...Wow what a better world it would be...
