You see...what had happened was...

Let me set the scene....

It was a dark and stormy night.........

Ok. Ok.
Tuesday morning, 5:30am. Dark as soot up here where I live! Pouring down rain.

And, the best part.....I'm VERY stubborn. I know I know. Shocker!!

So, my mom was gonna drop me off at the airport, on my way to Walt Disney World for work.

So...I decided to use the side porch (that we never use because the steps are awful)

Yes. You can already see where this is headed...

Anyways, I digress.

It was raining. Like. Pouring. I was in a hurry. So I decided to only make ONE trip to the car.

So. I grabbed my suitcase, my carrying bag, and out the door I went.

Step one, step two, and set my suitcase on the ground and BAM!!!!

No step three!

I just stepped straight down to the ground and my ankle went as far under me as possible.

I screamed like a little girl that just meet Justin Beiber!!!!

So loud that mason, who was upstairs, in the bathroom getting ready, heard me and came running outside.

Needless to say, I screamed, cried, regrouped grabbed an ankle brace and dashed out the door.
Like a beast.

As soon as we landed I called my doc (who is awesome, btw)

(foot...about 3 hours after the "incident")

He assured me it wasn't broken.
Take care of business, wrap it tight, lots of ibuprofen, Ice, and stay off of it.....

Um....has he never been to Walt Disney World?!?!

Ok. So 862 miles of walking, later :)
(the next morning)

And in every single pic we took, I have this crazy, my-leg-doesnt-need-to-touch-the-ground thing going on.

I went to see him as soon as we got back home.

Just before going to the doc...
And now....the boot!


Nah, I didn't do this...but it was fun to pose for a photo opp :)

All good things must come to an end.

(photo credit to my Sissy)

This photo Is the perfect reflection of how I feel this morning. You can't see my tears.

But what you can see is a Mama so proud. Not just proud of my #50. Proud of all of them. Like they are my very own.

 I'm not sad because they lost.

I mean, yes, like Mason always wish you could go one more round. But...

Come on. The played Hoover. It's like saying you fought Mahamad Ali. Or that you swam with Michael Phelps.

They played AT Regions Park. Under the lights.

They made it to round 2, when half of the nation was at home. Wishing they would have.

This year alone:
They buried a teammate
Battled numerous injuries
Lost several starters to injuries
Attend the funeral of their Coach's father, as a team
And made it to Round 2 in the state playoffs. Something no Pell City Team has done in YEARS!!!

But most of all, they found that brotherhood that many men before them have found in this sport, and that's why it's the game it is.

As a girl, I never really "got it". And even when Mason came in that freshman year and said he wanted to go out for Spring Training. I fought it.He wanted to play, his Daddy wanted him to play, and I wanted him to stay home and cuddle with me...and not get hurt ;)

I'm so glad I lost that battle.

These are my boys.


And I'm not sad because they lost.

I'm sad because this chapter of our life has closed. And I won't have them every day. To love and hug.

I might not have a house fulla boys on Saturday mornings to feed.

I won't have Fridays full of psycho chaos. Chaos that I love.

So. I'm thankful for this picture. Of me. So proud of my boys.

And I guess my biggest question what?!

Oh starts Monday:)

a 20 minute recap.....

And so it all comes down to this.

A 20 minute recap of the entire football season.

And truthfully, the season isn't over yet, but we wanted the video ready for Senior Dinner, so, here it is.

I will add the events of today (Senior Day) and then the playoff games, and then it will be complete.

However, the funny thing is......

It's just so symbolic of time, and our lives.

How much we invest in every day, and how much we worry about the "small stuff" when truly, this is a 20 minute recap that begins with Picture Day, back in June.


And here we are 5 months later....and all of the workouts, early mornings, hot afternoons, late Friday nights, painful Saturday mornings.

Yes, all of that...5 months, recapped in 20 minutes.

And so, yes, it is true what God tells us in His word.

Life is but a vapor.

And, as I watch the video, I am thankful.

Thankful for every second I got to spend with these boys.

Thankful for bandaids.
Thankful for Ibuprofen.
Thankful for the boys that wanted my lotion because they were "ashy"
Thankful that they know I love them to bits.

Yes, and even thankful for that blessed football program...and all of the blood, sweat, and tears ;)

I wouldn't trade a second of my "vapor" for these times.

Truly. The best days of our lives.
