You’ll Shoot Your Eye Out… (literally!)
We are asking that everyone we know spreads his story around and keeps him in their prayers. The part of the movie, “A Christmas Story”, is pretty legit when it states, “You’ll shoot your eye out.” Never in a million years did we think this could be our son. I always laughed at that part of the movie, thinking ya like that’d happen.
He was at least 6-8 feet away, hiding next to a tent when he decided to pop his head up to look at the red cup target.
We strongly feel we let other children see how important it is to always be safe with guns, even as small as a bb.
Thank you for your prayers, love and support. In a time of comfort and need, we can say with certainty- our home has felt them. We’ve prayed for ways for Drake to feel comfort and peace during the next few years of recovery.
“Trust in Lord the with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all the ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.”
What path should we take. Where can we turn for peace? Prayer, that’s for sure.Drake has found peace in a really cool bracelet that his, “Grannie,” sent him. She made it by hand special just for him. It has beautiful beads, feathers, jingles, etc. She wrote in a note, “I made this, (wrist band) with lots of fun stuff on it, just for you. Every time you see one of the beads, dangles or feather or when you hear the little jingle bells, think how much your Heavenly Father loves you and have faith that your eye will get better”.
