Throughout the whole ordeal with Tucker, (and by ‘whole ordeal’ I mean starting WAYback, not just the here and now) we’ve wanted him to be the best person he could be! From the moment we knew Tuck was going to be ok, we joked that this blow to the head was going to give us a new, and improved Tucker!
I realize that it’s kind of sick to joke about such a horrible situation, but that’s how we roll! 🙂 I mean, for the love! Around here, if someone breaks something, we blame it on Averie’s ghost! *Don’t know who Averie is? See my blog Glimpses Of Heaven* Anyway, every time we joke about that it reminds me of the movie Christmas Vacation when uncle Eddie says “‘She falls down a well, her eyes go cross. She gets kicked by a mule. They go back. I don’t know.” “He’s an addict, he’s an A-hole. He gets hit in the head, he’s a perfect little angel. I don’t know.” Yeah, um, not hardly!
There are some things, from the assault, that we hope stick. One of those is that he loves hugging people! I’m not sure if that’s the brain injury or that he’s just grateful to be alive. Either way, I LOVE it! Another thing we hope sticks, is that he’s relatively compliant! You might know that he’s unhappy about what he has to do, but usually, he’ll do it! I’m afraid that one might be fading a bit already :-(. On the other hand, there are things that we hope go away quickly! For instance, he’s become very OCD about some things. I mean, BAD! If you want to see him go nuts, touch his shoes! And no, (for those of you who are into sick jokes) I’m not daring anyone! O. M. G. don’t touch his freakin’ shoes! You won’t like him when he’s OCD! Oh, and don’t bother trying to argue with him. If his mind is set on something, he’s not going to stop until he’s done it. Wait, that’s just genetics , never mind. 🙂
The way I see it, as bad as this all is, God will be glorified! Tucker will be new and improved! However, it won’t be from a brain injury, it’ll be because of Jesus Christ! Although, I DOfeel as if Jesus is going to use the brain injury to His advantage!
Today is going to be a great day! Lord willin’ and the creek don’t rise, tomorrow will be a great day as well ! And so will the next day, and the next! Because, even in the midst of difficulties, GOD IS FAITHFUL! There’s not a brain injury bad enough to stop Him from doing what He said He’ll do! You can run from God all you want, but eventually, He’ll get your attention one way or the other! Don’t want a TBI? Give your life to Jesus before it’s too late! 😉 Check this out! https://www.dropbox.com/sh/05cviv4tmng7f6s/AADDVeVbSlOtBa9gHLSIltHCa/Beautiful%20One.mp3
Standing on the promises of Christ my King! Through eternal ages let His praises ring! Glory in the highest I will shout and sing! Standing on the promises of God!
