What is really important

So often we get caught up in the things to do, places to be of the world that we really do take what is important for granted. At the end of the day when there is nothing or everything to do, nowhere or everywhere to go...your family is the constant. Our family suffered the loss of my father-in-law just a couple months ago. The loss of such a special man really puts life into prospective. It is such a cliche but it is so true...live each day to the fullest no one knows what tomorrow brings.

Billy Hatzman a talented barrel racer from central Ky. lost his father in a car accident on Sunday. Please keep his family in your prayers as they go through this most difficult time.

Cory Lampkin a young barrel racer from Tennessee re-broke his leg yesterday. He was recovering from a serious break just a few weeks ago while running barrels at the Fortune Five race. Cory was well on his way to recovery and had made 2 exhibition runs on Saturday. I spoke to his mother Connie tonight and she said that Cory was going through a difficult time. Though they know there are much worse things that could happen it is difficult. Please keep Cory in your prayers as he undergoes surgery tomorrow morning.

  1. I am so sorry for your loss. It's really hard loosing a loved one. My husband lost his mother about four years ago. I hope Cory goes through surgery well and everything turns out well for him. My husband was told he was never going to walk again after a bull shattered his leg in 17 pieces. He was able to walk and he even rode bulls again. There is hope and God can do some pretty miraculous things.
