Not so RaNdOm...

James and I were going for an evening walk with Jack around the neighborhood a few nights ago. Since weeks had gone by since either of us had spoken to each other about our decision for Jack's leg...we began talking. (I have always wondered if Jack could really understand what we are saying, because he seems to understand more than we i feel guilty talking about him, the decision and my fears when he's around.)  None the less, we were in deep conversation when, out of nowhere a man wearing a prosthetic leg came flying past us riding his bike.  "Did you just see that?" I said to James, as we both slowed up our walking pace.   I have walked the 2.5 mile loop millions of times in our subdivision, at all hours of the day and NEVER I have I seen this man.  Part of me wanted to run and chase him down...but, as fast has he came, he was gone. 

God has some timing.  He also has a great sense of humor.  It was as if he was saying to us "Stop all this nonsense talking - Jack will be fine, trust ME."

Thanks Nike for sharing this inspirational moment:

Mothers Day!

Jack's Learning how to drink from a cup with a straw, it has been challenging but he is making good progress!

As I came home from work on Mothers day, Jack greeted me with a big smile!  I was so happy to see him! I really miss spending time with Jack and James on weekends  - but its what we have to do now...

Jack showing me his "painting" he made with daddy..."Sailboat on the water"  I was SO touched that James would have worked with Jack to create a special mothers day gift!!  James said Jack was pretty messy with paint, but he had a blast!

Jack's paintings (with daddy's help)  "Sailboat on the water"
