As I was checking my facebook status last evening I noticed a message on my wall from a high school classmate- Megan Pierce-Sheibner. It sparked my interest because of the message she posted- along with the youtube video. Again...my excitement was difficult to cap.... but I watched the video.
Megan and I were in a few classes together- not many. Geez, I'm getting too old to really remember who was in my high school class! We were in band front marching in skimpy Trojan attire with Peter Pan hats. We did our routine with fake ridiculous swords. As any Trojan would. Sorry Megan!
Sadly, I never really knew Megan.
Graduation- lives go in different directions. Years pass.
Then facebook comes into the lives of many. We are friends again. Thanks to facebook.
Megan is probably the only Boston Red Sox fan that I like.
Megan- this woman who I now know as a christian, wife, mother, educator, friend of many.
I felt my world stop while watching the video she posted on my wall.
That is Megan's husband! This was their life!
Tears. Sadness. Selfish relief.
I wanted to reach out through my computer and embrace Megan and Steve.
I learned a lesson while listening and watching their video.
This morning I had Football Superstar watch. He had no words. I could see emotion in his eyes. How fortunate we are each day. Each moment of our life is a gift from God.
Our God is so amazing. And God's purpose. What about that?
Thank you Megan for sharing your story...... for bringing your family into my home. Into our lives.
PS.....this does not change my mind how I feel about the Red Sox! giggling.
I would like to encourage everyone to link onto
