Thunder, Death and Life on James Island, South Carolina-July 4th Weekend

Today July fifth eight years ago at three in the afternoon my mom died after fighting breast cancer for four years. It thundered that day. Today July fifth at three in the afternoon my two daughters went to a funeral for a friend, a young man, that died two days ago over something that seemed to matter at the time. It thundered today. I did not go with them hoping that they would bring home a life lesson about death and life. I knew the child that died and can only imagine what his parents must feel. I have prayed everyday for twenty-one years that I would never have to experience my children dying before me. When I was eight or so we went to my dad's fathers funeral. My granddad was sixty-nine and his mother was ninety-five. That day she told me she had buried three husbands and today she had to bury her baby and no mother should live to bury a child. Just like any other parent I would gladly give my life for my children. Today I tried to explain to my children that life does not work that way. There are no do-overs in this life. You can make changes in your life after you make a mistake, if you are lucky enough to live through them, but when your life ends there are no do-overs. It is very hard to understand how anyone can take someone elses life for any reason. YOU CAN NOT TAKE IT BACK. These days our children seem to grow up so fast. I pray today that each mom and dad out there hug their children, tell them you love them and just talk about life. It is short. I also pray for Craig, his parents, his brothers and all of their family and friends. May you feel Gods love and may He give you peace.

Charleston native Jimmy Hagood

Speaking of BBQ (and Men’s Vogue June 6 issue was recently), Charleston native Jimmy Hagood was pulling his Blackjack BBQ rig into NYC for the 6th Annual Snapple Big Apple BBQ Block party in Madison Square Park. 14 pit masters from around the country served up plates of their specialties for an appreciative crowd. This is just a teaser for the Southern National BBQ Championships and Bluegrass Festival to be held the end of August at Boone Hall.
