Inspirational Monday #2

This past weekend was so great filled with family and friends!

We're so grateful and blessed.

I hope you had a wonderful weekend as well! 

A couple of weeks ago we went to Target for some shopping. Troy boy was running down the halls, letting loose some of his energy :)! It was all fine until he tripped over the wheels of the cart and fell on the bottom of a clothing rack. There was a blunt edge that he fell face first onto. He was crying and I picked him up in a panic to see where he was  hurt. I noticed on his forehead a couple inches above his eyebrow was a puncture wound. It was probably 1 cm wide and 1 cm deep. I could see inside the little hole as it was bleeding. I was SO worried for him. There I was at Target, alone with the kiddos. I quickly put a baby wipe on the wound to stop the bleeding and found some band aids. To my relief it had stopped bleeding so I just tightly placed the band aids. Austin then said, "At least it wasn't his EYE!"

Absolutely, Austin! :)

In that moment, my eyes teared up. I told him that was so true and then I gave thanks to our marvelous God. It could have been so much worse. If he would've fallen a couple inches more forward, that puncture would've been on his eye. 
And that would've been terrible. 

We quickly checked out and I called the clinic in town to see if they had any same day appointments because I knew he'd need at least stitches. They didn't but the Nurse was going to see if they could maybe fit him in when we got there. On the way, Troy fell asleep. He was so exhausted. I was praying that he would be fine. When we arrived at the clinic, I had to wake him up but thankfully he was in good spirits. When we got there, the Nurse came to see Troy. She spoke with a Doctor and thankfully he was able to fit him in! Otherwise, we would've just went to the ED. He was so sweet to my little boy whom I was so concerned about. And Troy was a total trooper, he layed perfectly still while the Doctor fixed up his battle wound.

 I am completely grateful!
