I almost fainted!!!

Sit down for this one ladies...Me and Kenny had a lot of errands to run today and we did them in our 107 degree weather here in Colorado; well, we got home and sat down with some flavored water when we hear this loud knocking on the door; he goes to the door and opens it and in walks in a young man who at first I didn't quite reconize; it was MY GRANDSON HAYDEN!! Now here's why I didn't reconize him....he was living in another town in Montrose w/his mother and he went to TEXAS with a friend on my daughters and the guy and Hayden got in an argument and they guy left him on the side of the road!!! Along with EVERYTHING my grandson owns; they were suppose to come here but the guy decided to go to Texas first I guess?? I had NO idea any of this was going on!! Well, he (Hayden) takes it upon himself to....sit down ladies....he HITCH HIKED from Texas to Colorado!!!! A very nice truck driver drove about 200 miles out of his way to bring him to his grandma!!! I still want to throw up just thinking about it. I asked why he didn't call me and he said he didn't have my number with him he just knew where my house was..and it "wasn't a big deal GRANDMA" I'm sure I kept turning pailer & and his mother will have a very...I don't know how to word this..."discussion"..he says she's suppose to come here the 4th of July; we'll see what happens...he left everything he owns on the side of the highway..he grabbed a few clothes and a few personal items and put them in a back pack and walked/hitch hiked about 800 MILES!! OMG!! And I think, no I KNOW God was watching over my little "Boo" (his nickname) on his way to his grandma; he wants to stay with us and YES he is going to. FOREVER!!! So, off we'll go shopping tomorrow for some clothes for him; he doesn't have anything; so if anyone has any "extra" young man clothes they'd like to donate I'd sure appricate it; with Kenny not working, it's not a good time money wise; but we will make it work...(he wears a size 30/32 or 32/32 pant) :) KIDS!! Good thing I didn't colour my hair today; I was waiting to do it tomorrow I have more gray hairs now than I did earlier...LOL I can laugh now because I hear him sitting outside laughing with Kenny; here's a pic of the three of us..:)

Stitching wise; I finished my Patrotic Summer; and am on the end of my Mystery Sampler; I just want to hurry and get this picture done and framed and put into the State Fair...:)

Take care ladies..I need a VALIUM!!! Wish I had some...LOL

Wow! What an adventure ~ glad he's safe with you now.

Amazing how young folk are about things like this, it "wasn't a big deal"! Glad he's got a nice grandma like you! Your Mystery Sampler is coming along nicely; can't wait to see it finished and framed!

So glad he is safe. My DS2 (19) keeps telling me to Chillax! Patriotic summer looks great.

I'm glad he made it there safely.
Almost there on the mystery sampler!
Love your Patriotic piece, it's so colorful.

Veronica said...

Praise God he's safe! I'm so sorry he had to leave everything on the side of the road. That's just awful. Sending prayers. Cathryn

Dawn said...

So Glad his journey was safe and God gave him an angel to bring him to you. I'll see what my son son has, that's about the size he is. Not sure but well do A look see. How old is he?
Since you don't have Valium turn to your stitch therapy lol

Vickie said...

Oh wow! Thank God he is okay and with you. But to lose everything! Oh my!

Parsley said...

Deep breaths for me because my heart was racing. Oh Sharee...he was meant to come to you so you could love his heart. How old is he?

Anyway, visit your local Goodwill or Salvation Army to help stock him back up on clothes. People donate perfectly good items and you can buy them for cheap.

Sending hugs...
