Life Update.

Oh, y'all. Things have just been so crazy. I think most of you saw my post about my Uncle Ben. He was shot early Saturday evening by his new wife. We aren't sure of all the details, but can only assume that it has something to do with his money. I'm not sure how she thought she would get away with shooting the Chief of Police. She is in jail. My uncle is doing better. Small improvements. He is still on a ventilator and will be until his lungs heal.(One of them collapsed.) The best news is that his brain is functioning completely normally. Praise the Lord!!! It will be a long road of recovery but the Drs are very hopeful! Please pray that he can avoid infection and that his lungs will heal quickly. 

Between that and everything else, I have been crazy busy. Working 3 jobs, and going to class 2 nights a week is kicking my bootay. I'm tired. Exhausted actually. Tomorrow should be a nice day of rest. 

In other news, I had the craziest thing happen to me last night!!! I got woken up at 2am this morning with my roommate telling me that my mom was on the phone and needed to talk to me. I had several missed calls from her, but my phone was on silent so I didn't hear it. Anyway, mom asks if I am home and if I am ok and tells me there has been an accident. I am immediately panicked. She goes on to tell me that there was an accident and my wallet was found at the scene. WHAT?!! I didn't even know that my wallet was missing. SO, drunk driver has an accident, flips his truck and my wallet was found at the scene. Everything in my wallet still has my parents address on it, so the cops send an officer to my parents house to wake them up and make sure I am ok. They totally freaked out!! I am ok. I was home sleeping!! Turns out, when I got gas yesterday, I left my wallet on my trunk. I made a big turn to get on the interstate and the wallet flew off into the grass. Hours later, a drunk guy made the same turn and rolled his truck. In processing the accident scene, they came across my wallet and assumed it had been stolen. This guy had a wreck exactly where my wallet was!!! What are the chances of that?? Slim to none. The officer at my parents house put me in contact with the officer that processed the scene and he brought my wallet to me at 3am. Seriously. I didn't even know it was gone. And the course of events led someone to it, and led them back to me...freaking my parents, my roommate and I out in the process.  BUT it got back to me before I really even realized it was gone!! My wallet had some scratches but nothing was missing. Everything in tact. Can I just say that God is so good! He constantly blesses me when I don't deserve it. I don't know if this will ever happen again, but I can say that I will never question His power again. He watches out for me even when I don't think I need to be watched out for. I am just so blessed. I have no idea what his purposed behind that situation was, but if nothing else, my faith is so much stronger today.

I hope you all have had a wonderful week and have an even better weekend!!
