I must thank all of you my little prayer warriors.... I think your prayers are working!!!  Today has been an awesome day with Alex... he has been all smiles and jokes with us and on his best behavior!   He has had us  cracking up all day... in high spirits.... just ALOT of fun today!!  He even went outside and was shooting some hoops in the courtyard..... AWESOME DAY.... SOOOO THANK YOUUUUUU!  

Hanging out tonight... laughing and cutting up... Alex is actually having confessional tonight... LOL!  Like the good ole days!  Getting ready to watch "The Blindside"... Randi hasn't seen it yet.  Tomorrow is a big day, lots to do... can't wait!

Thanks to Denise and Jessica for contacting me and wanting to fundraise for Alex... YOU LADIES ARE AWESOME and we can't thank you enough!  Brian also notified me today that there will also be a fundraiser jar for Alex at the Outdoor Sportsman Fest tomorrow at the Diamond D Ranch....at the Hell Fighters Motorcycles Ministry table.  Thank you Blaine and Cindy!  Brian gave them some pictures of Alex to give away :0)

I ask that tonight you all send Somer's mom, Diena Thompson,  some prayers!  I am so thankful that an arrest has been made and even though this is probably the best news she has been wanting... I'm sure that this is bringing everything back and she is reliving that day ... especially having to speak to the media.  My heart aches for her because I can somewhat relate to what she is feeling although certainly not entirely.  Please lift her up in prayer... may she find peace and comfort in this crazy world and know that sweet Somer is in a much better place than this crazy world we live in today!  An angel on earth is an angel in heaven!!  As Alex was watching the news with us today at noon for the press conference... he looks at us and says... "what is wrong with people today?"... "why do people do the crazy things that they do?"..."  I just don't understand it" as he points to his concaved head!  God Bless you Diena Thompson... I pray that God wraps his arms around you and your family and that you find some peace in your heart knowing that justice will soon be served for your precious angel girl!  Prayer warriors.... get busy for this family... we got work to do!!

Have a great weekend.... remember my friends.... LIVE FOR TODAY.... don't take your blessings for granted and spend some quality time with your loved ones.  ONE PHONE CALL CAN CHANGE YOUR LIFE...completely...and you can't get that back! Ask me.... Ask Diena Thompson!   If you are down in the dumps... missing something in your life...not walking with Christ.... get on your knees.... my friend J.C. can change your life and bring you a whole new outlook!  Put your faith in him... he won't disappoint!  And do me a favor.... just thank HIM one time for any special blessing in your life.... he doesn't get near the praise and honor he should!  We all liked to be called upon just because.... not necessarily every time someone needs something from us!  THANK YOU GOD FOR ONE MORE DAY WITH MY HANDSOME BOY!  Thank you God for all of your many many blessings in my life that you continue to give me on a daily basis.  You are an awesome God and a miracle worker!  People are watching and seeing is believing... ALEX MICHAEL ROSS continues to amaze sooo many with his recovery!  His physical therapist from Shands, Rachel, came by to see him today and she was in awe of Alex and how amazing he looks and is doing.... watching him shoot hoops today from his chair...well... you could just see the sunshine in her eyes and the huge smile on her face to go with it!  Again... THANK YOU GOD FOR ONE MORE DAY WITH MY HANDSOME BOY.... I can't thank you enough!!

Signing off.... Blindside is on... Alex is asleep... quality time with the little sister, my angel! :0)
