As much fun as vacations can be, there is just something so comforting about sleeping in your own bed and snuggling with the one you love(Mr. SS, of course). I have been busy playing catch up (you know...laundry, bills, housework, etc.) so haven't had time to post about the rest of my Kentucky vacation. I will spread out the rest of the trip eventually, because I still have some great pictures to share. Spending time with my family there has meant alot and I am in love with the state of Kentucky.
Another reason I haven't posted about the rest of my trip is that as I was catching up on some of my favorite blogs, I discovered one that I had missed was that of my friend Suzanne. She owns my favorite quilt store and her blog is about her store and her life. She is very open about the things going on in her life. She has been sharing lately about her son Jeff who was diagnosed with ALS last year. I have just felt, I don't know, frivilous posting about vacationing when she is away spending day and night in the hospital with her son.
Jeff is very special to me as Suzanne and I were best friends when we where pregnant with our first babies. She had Jeff and I had Scott, just two weeks later. Jeff was born on Scott's original due date.
Even though we lived 2 hrs. apart, we shared everything during pregancy, birth, and the raising of two of the cutest little boys. We visited often and even dressed them alike at times. They had the same toys, liked many of the same foods and progressed about the same, but Jeff was always one step ahead of Scott in each area of development for the first year or two, so I always knew what to expect next.
I changed Jeff, fed him, rocked him to sleep and loved him.
After the first couple of years, we weren't together as often as my husband's job (if you can call playing pro baseball a job) took us all over the country.
But we remained friends and have been in and out of each others lives often, mostly due to my families life changes.
Anyway, not to make this about me, I know Suzanne will read this and will not mind if I ask my readers to pray for Jeff and his family and my dear friend and her husband Bill. You can go to her blog by clicking here and read about Jeff's progress. He's had a few rough weeks, but seems to be doing better with the love and prayers of many of his family and friends.
