12/11/12 ( What Jerk would do such a thing)

I know our world is not perfect, I know that danger can come to us anytime, anywhere. Yet It saddens me when the dangerous part of the world touches my world.  Yesterday I got a disturbing text from Mr. after 4pm. It said that my father in law was robbed at gunpoint & my mother in law was at the police station. I then got another word from him saying that my father in law was beaten over the head with the robbers gun.

My father in law ( Mr.'s Father ) is about 72 yrs old, he is a cab driver, yet besides that he is a Senior Citizen! This isn't the first time a family member of mine was robbed. My father about 4-5 yrs ago was robbed at gunpoint by a guy who was suppose to be a friend of mine.  When I heard of this news  about my father in law I was saddened, worried, upset, crying... We didn't know how bad the injury was , so during that time of "not knowing" of course you think of all these things, adding on top he is a senior citizen, me being in the medical field I know even small injuries can be bad for Seniors.


After an hour we got word that the head injury seemed minor but he was still going to the hospital to get checked.  All I know is our family is Grateful for God watching over him..

I pray that A$$ hole ( excuse my language) is caught, I pray he doesn't rob or hurt ANYONE else. I know its the Holiday season & my father was in a vulnerable position being a cabbie & all but that does NOT excuse such lewd, wrong behavior.  Ive been on the end of receiving violence, its not fun .  Anyway.... done with my rant, & Thank you to all who seen my tweets yesterday on Twitter & texted me,Tweeted me offering my family their concern & comfort.

On a good note, my labels came in yesterday & now my lipbalms looks amazing.. so go & get some now! ( click on pic to shop)

  1. I hope your father-in-law makes a speedy recovery.

    It angers me that people these days are so thoughtless that they'd attack an old man for what? A few dollars. Sickening. :(
