All the jewels aren't at the shop!

My family had a treasure of an evening last night. We got to sit down for dinner with "e" and her family. For those that may not know Evonne lost her left leg, the same way and the same day as my husband, Bob. This was the first time Bob & Evonne had met. (Our families go way back from hanging out if the Intensive Care waiting room!). Evonne has recovered mightily and just glows with her thankfulness of still being on this earth with her family. It was wonderful to see everyone's high spirits and grateful hearts. We don't know what God has in store for Bob or Evonne but it must be mighty big! Thanks to all of you who have prayed for healing. Our families are strong and confident of the future and know that we wouldn't be doing as well with out all the support and love that you have shown us. We are humbled by your friendship. Enjoy your day!

Theresa, thank you for your kind words and thank you guys for coming over. It was an honor to finally meet Bob and your chidren are so amazing, they get it honest. It was so refreshing to finally meet another family who knows what life is like, once the company leaves and life goes back to normal. It was so refreshing to hear you say that yeah you may have to make extra trips bringing in stuff, but at least everytime you go in the door you know Bob is there. That gave me so much comfort as some days I feel like I'm more of a burden than I am helping. Take care to our new friends and God bless you and YOURS everyday. In God's Love
