In an instant...

Today I am (sadly) reminded how it only takes a single instant to completely change a life. A cousin of mine was stabbed at a party over the weekend and is now in extremely critical condition and fighting for his life. He's already "died" twice and been brought back. His name is Jonathan and he's only 23. If you're so inclined, he and his family can use all the prayers, good thoughts, etc. that they can get.

I had planned to write today about how Ryan is still dealing with pneumonia (headed back to the doctor this afternoon) and the darned Santa Ana winds are just KILLING my sinuses and a few other equally inconsequential things, but it just seems rather pointless. So I'll save that stuff and some new pictures for another day.

To those who've been reading and commenting...thanks for taking the time and please know I appreciate all your input!

Have a great weekend everyone...and don't forget to take the time to tell those you love how you feel about them. Life is unpredictable!

Take care,

Good lord. I was gonna answer your comments, but now that seems rather frivolous and I think can wait. I hope your cousin heals, and I'm *so* sorry to hear that. :( Sending the thoughts and prayers.

Oh my! I am so sorry to hear this! You and your cousin are definitely in my prayers! I wish you all the best. I'm just a customer, but you've already had an impact upon my life! Take care of you and yours!
