The life I had and the life I have

One of the things I am reminded of on a daily basis is the life I once had and the life I currently have. When I wake up in the morning, one of the first things I see every day is a picture of my family, prior to any loss or accident. Next to that, is a picture of my son, Trey, who stepped into heaven seven and a half years ago. Shortly after that, I am generally greeted by my oldest son, Caleb, who suffered a traumatic brain injury over two years ago. In a matter of moments, I am reminded of the life I had and have, and it is met with mixed emotions.


Well, considering the movie theater related headlines we’ve seen the past few days, it looks like I have a good excuse to get political with my column this week.

Moving forward

Oklahomans have listened and the curve is flattening. As of Monday morning, cases are expected to peak by the end of the month. The number of positive daily cases has been shrinking, which is a good sign as well.



Remember when you could go to a movie theater and be greeted by a wealth of brand new films each and every week, all showing in lavish auditoriums with crisp projectors and immersive surround sound systems that make you feel like you’re experiencing a movie instead of just watching it?
