Today is a day that I will NEVER forget!
We went to the beach today hoping for a nice, somewhat quite, day. I packed stuff for a barbecue and all of the kids were excited to be able to go and try out their new boogie boards . The surf was really high and very strong! Perfect for this kind of stuff right?
Well all of this came to a screeching halt as we were walking down to the beach. As we were walking, this lady comes towards me and says to me , you see that person out in the water? I looked and way out was this person all I could see was the head and it kept going under and then surfacing again. I sent her for help and I jumped into action! I was able to pull him out and give him the help he needed. He was to tired to swim towards shore and between the waves and the power that they create . The waves would push him towards the shore and then take him back out and he got tired out and couldn't go anymore.
The man is alright Thank you JESUS! And I am whooped! After all of the excitement, he was able to join us all for dinner! We were not going to go to the beach in the beginning. We were going to just stay home and grill and swim in the pool. Thank God that I was in the right place at the right time. Life is so precious! And you never know when you are needed. We have to think the same way about our Spark Friends! We are all so far apart from each other and the only way we will know if one of us needs another is by staying in contact with each other either by spark mail, personal e-mail, or by phone if that's the case.
You ALL are so precious to me and if there is anything you ever need, I am here for YOU! Anytime you all are out and about, please Remember the other guy! always keep your eyes and ears open 'cause you never know when the other guy may need you! I Love you all and I hope you had a blessed holiday and I hope you have a wonderful week! HUGS, Your friend Rose
