What really matters?

My sister has had a rough few months, with three kids in diapers, an engineer husband who has had to take a 75% cut in pay to keep his local job during these hard times and is the soul bread winner she has suffered a near nervous breakdown. They decided to take a vacation. They went this afternoon to Gatlinburg TN to spend the week in her in-laws cabin. When they arrived and were unpacking Case Hamilton who this past weekend celebrated his 2nd birthday was left briefly alone in all the excitement of unpacking and touring the beautiful cabin stumbled into the pool and drowned his dad found him face down and not breathing he quickly performed CPR and manged to revive him before the ems arrived. And is currently in the hospital due to his weak lungs they have no idea whats going to happen (chlorine can cause delayed drowning in lungs such as his)but is doing well at the moment. Had they been 60 short seconds later it could have been to late.
Life is a vapor as the good book says. And this has really put things into perspective this evening as I kiss my 2 year old good night I realize that all too often I let my trading be my a little "g" god to THE GOD and my family all to often become 2nd and 3rd. So make sure you tell that someone special that you love them and what they mean to you because tomorrow may be to late, and only regrets remain.
My prayers are with you and your family Joe. Please keep us posted!

Joe, my thoughts and prayers are with your family.
Joe, I hope that everything gets well for your family.
Thanks you guys,

I just found out that all is well with them today, and they even slept well last night. And no problems with his lungs. Right after case received CPR, he keep saying "I fell in the pool" over and over again. And no brain damage due that they can tell.
Great to hear Joe!!!
I am really sorry to hear about that Joe. I will pray for him.
Also glad to hear that he is doing better now. Hopefully he is back to his old form soon.
My sincere condolences for your loss. You sound like a good man...
