Donate button to the right.....

In case you are unaware, my very best friend, April's husband was in a very serious collision on Friday November 5, 2010.  He was on his way to work when a drunk driver crossed over into his lane hitting him head on at 60 miles per hour.  He was cut out of his car and taken via ambulance to Hartford hospital in Connecticut. He was admitted and taken to the ICU neurological trauma center.  He is stable now but still not conscious, his kids can't come see him because of all the wires and monitors.  The doctors say they don't know how this will effect him in the long run but he will be hospitalized for a very long time and they are saying a rehabilitation center will most likely follow his hospital stay.

April and Chris work hard to support their family.  They both work 2 jobs (April sometimes works 3)!!  They barely are able to make it on the amount that all those jobs bring in!  Now with Chris not working, April is going to have a very tough time of it!!

And please please pray for my friend April and her family!!

Was just thinking......

Man I haven't posted in a long time...I have been thinking about it and decided that I am going to add a feature....Mock up Mondays....While I have been developing the idea and cultivating my thoughts around it, I haven't had a chance to post. 

Then tragedy hit my dearest friends the form of a drunk driver.  I got the call at 8 am Nov. 5th and was on a plane to Connecticut at 6pm.  I am here now and doing my best to hold it all together.  Please if you have a facebook page visit the page I set up Help April and Christopher Couillard, I will be setting up an account for them so that people can donate to help support the family in this difficult time. 

Alright, in an effort to stay sane.....I am returning to the idea of Mock up Mondays.  In it I would write a post detailing a fantasy trip, way of life or event.  I think it could be fun to "pretend" that I had a fabulous trip to Italy, until I get to in real life!  LOL  Just the research alone will give me a chance to glimpse into things that I have no clue about.
