My favorite times.

My most favorite times, are times spent with cousins. This past weekend was pretty amaazing. Cousins..aunts..uncles..grandpa. its amaazing. our family is one-of-a-kind-amazing!! Its hard to imagine any other family as close as ours. What other family goes and eats lunch in an empty house. or has so many memories.. we could write a book. :)

This past weekend, Jackson, Eric and I walked up the "the park" for the very last time.. i was flooded with memories, of years gone by.. Brian carrying a ladder there so he could climb up and ring the bell.. (oh my!) attacking Eric on the slide. Flying kites.. our family baseball games.. Family football in pop's front yard.. Walking up the "Graces" school.. walking the track. Playing House on the side porch. fighting over the big wheel toy. HOURS of Dirty Uno.. food fight in the living room. (Brian and Eric started it!)  Aunt Sarah's pancake house!, sledding on the hill. Sitting around the living room singing Christmas songs. Christmas at the beach. I could go on.. but you get the idea.. my family is cooler then your family :) and i love them all bunches!!! I'm beyond thankful for every single cousin/aunt/uncle grandparent. Time spent with them feels right.. it should happen more. i loved this weekend.. and i cannot wait till the next time we are all together again!! =)

You know what my problem is?
I get attached, fast. And once I'm attached to someone, I do everything I can to please them and make them happy. It's never been about what I want, it's always everyone's needs before my own. I give out too many chances to people, who quite frankly, do not deserve them. They take advantage of me, and I'm okay with that, because they're in my life and that's all I ever really wanted. And  even if they scream me over, I'll still be there for them. Because that's me, that's who I am. Once I get attached to someone, they capture my heart and they will always have a place there. And that is why it's so hard for me to let this person go.

A total GOD STORY!!

So, I'm here to share with you.. a Total God Story.. God gets ALL the glory for this!!

So, Sunday.. at Church My grandpa passed out in church, during the sermon.. Thankfully it was on a sunday when My aunt was there with him.. (and thankfully his Dr. Just happens to go to the same church.. and the church has an emergency response team (nurses. etc) ) there) The lady sitting behind my aunt leaned forward and said "what can I do" My aunts response... "Get Dr. Laura"  Before  everyone could get over there.. He had stopped breathing... Laura then Asked "who knows CPR?" A guy said "I DO" and they went to work.. it took about a minute but they got him back :) God Saved a life!! =)  for a about a minute we lost my grandpa.. But God.. being the truly AWESOME God he has.. Brought him back and gave him back to us.. for how long.. no-one knows.. But We will enjoy and treasure every moment we have left with the incredible man of God! Thanks God for saving a life!! =)  One of the songs that keeps going through my head everytime I think about this is "How Great Tho Art"  We serve an AMAAZING God.. I'm still in awe!!! :)
All the right people were in the right place.. at the right time.. I also had people texting/ calling me to let me know they were praying.. not even minutes after i found out.. Thanks!! =)
