I know, twice in one day, but sometimes you just feel compelled.  I was reading a blog that I like,, and knew I had to do it.  The idea is to write about being grateful for 5 minutes and then stop, no editing, no takebacks.  So here goes…

I am grateful for…life.  Yeah, I know, who isn’t, but it’s been really weighing on me today.  Last night our town lost one of its firefighters at the Rangers baseball game.  A fun outing with his son suddenly turned tragic.  I don’t know the family on a personal level, but I do know them as parents of one our children at school.  He would come to eat with his son at school at least once a week and was always nice to talk to.  When he came in we would chat for a second if I wasn’t busy, or if I was busy he knew the drill and could take care of himself.  A genuinely nice guy.  And his son is one of the kids that you can’t help but love!  I keep thinking about him today.  How he witnessed his Dad fall.  I can’t imagine how he feels today.

So I’m grateful for life.  Death is not scary to me; leaving a child without a parent terrifies me!  He will be missed by all.

Dedicated to the Shannon Stone family, I will hold you in my heart and prayers.  May God grant you peace and comfort.
