Update from Little Rock

We have had a wonderful and enlightening visit here in Little Rock. I can surely tell you from the first moment that I saw Katye and had to fight back tears that my perspective on everything has changed. We have talked and rehashed everything that transpired in the last 2 weeks. I tried to be the srong one and cried as she retold the story of the helicopter crew escorting Bennett away and the flight nurse telling her he probably would not make the flight. Katye has been through SO much in such a short time and I can tell her faith has never been stonger. There is just a peace about her, even though I know she is still so concerned for her new baby boy. Katye said she is in a good place right now spirit wise due to the fact that Bennett is slowly but surely getting better. They are so unbelievably grateful for the outpouring support they have received from so many. I am so thankful for so many things... This event has helped me look at things so differently and ask myself, What is TRULY important in life? Gosh we all have so many things to be thankful for and take for granted. Thank you Lord for the strength you give us in time of need the mercy you show when we are selfish. Well, we are going back to the hospital before we head out of town. Write more later.

God choses to teach us and draw us -even through the smallest of ones.
