A thank you, a head’s up and a note

First off, thanks to all who have sent well wishes to my mother, who was recently released from the hospital. We had a pretty big scare there, and the support and prayers we got from family, friends, fellow writers and especially the UCLA community was in a word, overwhelming. But there’s never just one word from me, so: Thank you all, again.

Secondly, as some of you know, I had to head north to help her for the week, returning Friday or Saturday hopefully, so Jill Painter and Daily News intern extraordinaire Sam Strong will be handling most of the blog. I’ll be back for the start of fall camp.

Thirdly, Kai Forbath signed with the Dallas Cowboys today, per his Facebook page, and the Tennessee Titans UCLA connection is sticking together.

    Father, thank you that you are God. Thank you that we can come to you and seek you and know that you will hear our prayers. Thank you for your hand upon Jon’s mother. Father, bless her and come along side her. Help her to know, Lord, that you will be with her every step of the way. Help her to be assured that you are a God of healing and a God of life. Be wtih the family and help them Lord to know that they can call upon you and ask for anything in name of Jesus and that you will answer, according to you will. Just come right now, Lord. Provide healing, strength, and a good recovery. Thank you Lord that you love us so much and that you never leave us nor forsake us.

    In Jesus Name, Amen.

    Is this the same rejn that sometimes spills hatred and venom on the SC blog?
    — Oh, Lord, save me from your “followers.”

    What’s your point BE REAL – did you think hating on SC and believing in a Sky Daddy were mutually exclusive?

    Jon:
    I leave for a few days only to find that after you speak from the heart about your mom, the first post is about opinions on an NFL career and a final one trashes on rejn’s honest prayers for you and family.
    God help us all.
    And, as usual, I agree w/MRyer.
