I'm not really sure what's going on here? Why are we tackling our own players?During this game, Ty's head coach, Coach Johnson, his mother was hit by a speeding vehicle, in the parking lot. Sadly, she broke both of her legs. The team pulled together, collecting money to purchase her a few special gifts. The Fresh Market also donated a beautiful basket filled with ALL of her favorite, healthy snacks. The team donated, collectively, over $150, which was impressive considering I only asked for $5.00 per family. We bought her flowers, a gift card to the Fresh Market, magazines, a crossword puzzle, a book, called "The Power Of A Praying Woman", a beautiful journal, an over-sized card, a singing balloon, gum, and mints.
Lilah and I were able to deliver all of the goodies to her on Saturday. Mrs. Johnson is such a lovely lady. The gifts caused her tears and really touched her. Liley and I prayed with her before we left her room, at Richfield, asking the Lord for a speedy recovery. Please do the same, for her, if you think about it. She is a dedicated, hard working nurse of 30+ years and is devastated to leave her patients behind, while the nurses serve her. We are grateful that it was NOT a child who was hit because I do not think the outcome would have been as secure.
