It is kind of crazy how things happen. One minute you are self absorbed and the next you are shoved back to the real world. My summer day went from trying to decide whether to go to trivia and a outdoor concert or just the concert then deciding on going to a movie. Then it turned into Grandpa is sick and tomorrow I am going to St. Louis to see him.
Life is one of those crazy things that you never know what is coming, good or bad. Yet I am a strong believer in everything happens for a reason. Be skeptical if you must. For me having faith in the fact that everything works out is difficult. Especially when you are in the middle of a tough time. It is sometime like walking down a foggy road and not knowing where you will end up. However, things eventually start to fall into place and you begin to see where things fit together.
Right now I don't know really know how I feel. There is mix of feelings I'm worried, scared, hopefully, optimistic, kind of defensive or feeling like people aren't telling me everything. I am praying for my grandpa and my family and that is all I can really do right now. He is getting the best care and now we just have to wait and see how life plays out.
On a brighter note, I saw UP in 3D tonight before all of this went down and I really enjoyed it. This was the first movie I have seen in 3D at the theater and it is awesome, I highly recomm
