Today someone a number of us know as a cheerful, giving guy may be taking the stand as the defense lawyer has his day in court.
I won't provide links - but late in 2007, he was driving a truck that drove crazily and way too fast for a few minutes, and collided with the back of a car stopped at a red light. A man, his fiance, his two kids and their 16 month old, were all killed.
The horror the witnesses saw, the tragedy - the families of the victims - it's unimaginable what happened.
For those of us that know the driver, we not only were horrified by the accident, but shocked that someone we knew and liked was at the wheel.
Leaving the question of drinking aside - which is denied by defense counsel and our friend - the question of why was he driving like a deranged maniac is on the minds of all sides in this.
This fellow had a totally clean record, was a professional driver, the company's best (said his boss).
Please pray that justice is truly done, and for the families of both sides. Until someone you know is accused of something like this, you don't see how THEIR family suffers also. His wife couldn't go out shopping for groceries as people would harrass her and get in her face.
Prayers please for justice all around, and especially truth. And healing for all.
My aunt has sepsis. She is currently in the ICU, and her kidneys are failing.
They can't figure out what caused the infection, and are trying to figure that out now..
From what I've been told, it doesn't look very good right now.. It's going to take a lot of praying to turn this around for the better..
This is my favorite aunt and I haven't seen her since Thanksgiving.
I'm trying to figure out a way to get there to go see her.. They live in San Antonio, almost 6 hours away..
If anyone would like to add her to their prayer list at church, that would very much be appreciated.. Her name is Paula.
Prayers for your aunt, molucass, that they find the infection and can treat it! More prayers that you can find a way there.:love:
I second this. Keep the faythe. :love:

I can barely by food, and I can't afford my medication. Sometimes, I have to decide what I need - food, or medication. I am so scared... I don't know what to do. I have very little motivation and I basically feel housebound because I can't afford to do anything - not even drive because I'm scared to run out of gas in my car. Tilly and Nutmeg are still ok, as I always make sure I get food for them to eat. I just want to find a job and I am noticing that even the jobs that I could apply for are dwindling. I am not sleeping, I'm not eating properly.. I feel like my life is in shambles.
I wish I could wave a magic wand and produce a job for everyone who needs one but since that isn't feasible, I'll add my prayers to your situation. Try to hold on a little longer for Tilly and Nutmeg if for no other reason. I do know exactly how you're feeling. I was in the same situation years ago and I took to my bed out of fear, which of course, solved nothing. (((HUGS))) Keep the faythe. :love:

Often your doctor will have free samples of medication given to him/her by the drug company reps.
Apply for social services, even to cover your meds. Use the food bank. If you have a church community, reach out to them. Even the distress centre has resources for you to call.
Nutmeg and Tilly need their mommie!
HUGS and prayers that things improve soon with a job - but take care of yourself first!:love:
An extra set of vibes sent out your way.
My sis is having her surgery on Tuesday. She found a wonderful surgeon, after one from UCLA refused to even touch her during the exam. Some good vibes and thoughts would be much appreciated.
Huh? What kind of dr. is this that refused to touch her? Gawd!

Some AH that prodded her with a tongue depressor. I have his name and plan to drop a dime.:mad:

Whichever it is, prayers are going out to her and her family.
