About Me

My photo
Mysteries, polka dots, California Rolls, TJ Maxx, cozy blankets, rainy days and getting the first spoonful of peanut butter out of the jar make me smile. Spiders, rude people, cold fingers and toes, baby leashes, people that don't wrap their packages before going to the Post Office, poison ivy and Math (pretty much all of it) make me want to scream. My perfect day would be spent with my wonderful husband and sweet girls- watching movies in our jammies! Of course, having the movie theater to ourselves would be great, too. Please pass the popcorn and M&M's.:) I am saved by the grace of God. He is my constant companion and hears my every prayer. What a blessing! I'd love to hear from you!

Surely Goodness and Mercy

It was quite a day today. We got to take a trip to the ER with my little gymnast. It was all my fault, too. You see, I was trying to help Katie with her backbend kick-overs and she ended up hitting her head (full force) from a standing position. I heard the most horrible cracking/popping sound and I swear my heart stopped. Time stood still. It was all my idea to practice in the living room (it's carpeted), dear friends. Thankfully, she is fine, but let me tell you I PRAYED. We probably could have skipped the trip to the hospital, but I just had to KNOW that she was alright. It's amazing how small you feel when your children are hurt, especially when they are in your care. What would we do without the Lord?

Oh Lori
Sorry you've had a scare with Katie. It was best you had her checked out at the ER. Something similar happened with Jessica once, I will e-mail you about it. So glad she is ok.

Oh, Lori, I'm so glad to hear that she's alright! It's amazing how quickly something like that can happen. I remember all too well when Brittany was about almost two years old and I sat her on the counter at TJ MAXX so I could write my check. In the blink of an eye, she pushed herself backwards off the counter and hit her head. One of the worst days of my life! Thankfully, by God's grace, she was fine. I prayed non-stop, too!

I am so relieved that Katie is okay. And I agree that it is a comfort to know that God is in control!

Oh my Lori, I'm so glad she's okay. I know what you mean, my 4 year old scraped her elbows on a slide and she cried hysterically for hours. Ya know though, I figured out she was freaking out from the fear of the pain (taking bandaids on and off, etc.) and not the pain itself. But I felt sooo bad not being able to help her more. Anyway, glad she's okay.

Oh, I am so glad that she is fine. What a scary trip. When Lexi was learning to do back handsprings I was always so worried that something like that would happen. I still do.

Oh my goodness, glad Katie is okay. I know what you mean, though, we try to do everything we can to protect them, but God is in control. Nothing happens without His knowledge or consent, you know??

With Love, Jerelene

My own heart skipped a beat as I read this. You definitely did the right thing to take her in for your own peace of mind.
Tender Mercies of the Lord. : )

michelle said...

I am so glad she is alright! You are right. I hate that helpless feeling, at least you do have prayer. Sometimes it is all you have! Have a great weekend, maybe skip the gymnastist for a bit!

~The Robin's Nest~ said...

Wow Lori!!!!
I just read about Katie's accident... I do hope she is MUCH better now. Having kids can just be plain scary huh? I could not raise mine without the Lord-There are just too many things that happen that are out of "our" control!

Give her a kiss on the nogin from me! :)

Robin~♥
Your header is BEEE YOU TI FULL!

Oh, thank goodness she is okay. I'm the same way, we would have been on our way to the ER immediately. Hugs to you both. You are such a GREAT Mom.

Connie said...

I think we've all been there! I would have taken her to the hospital to be checked too. Glad she's OK.
It's a good thing we can turn to the Lord for help. He's always there!
