I tripped over the curb in the parking lot yesterday as I was coming out of Mass, and fell. I didn’t actually hit the ground, because Kendall was right there, and he caught me. Thanks be to God! But I twisted my knee like crazy.
I barely made it home, then barely made it into the house. I am so grateful for my wonderful son and husband who practically carried me in from the car! Gaylon gave me a pain pill, and then he and Kendall went to get some crutches for me, and lunch for everyone. Once they got back and we ate, Gaylon took me to the Emergency Room.
They took x-rays and determined that I didn’t break any bones, gave me a script for Norco and a referral to an orthopedic specialist and sent me home.
I slept in the recliner downstairs last night because I couldn’t make it up to my own bed. Today, I felt a bit better, and called the doctor. He only works on Wednesdays, so, I have an appointment on this Wednesday afternoon. Like my friend, Becky, said: Good thing I’m not dying!
But, even though I was “down”, today was full of blessings. One of Abby’s friends, Rachel, and her little sister, Therese, brought me the most beautiful flowers, and a sweet card from them and the whole family. Then they stayed and visited for a couple of hours, and it was so nice to have company!
Abby took fantastic care of me, helping me get in and out of the chair and cooking lunch for me. She even vacuumed, without me asking! I really do have the best daughter in the whole wide world!
My mom ran all over town getting groceries and spent her entire day off making sure that I’d be set for the week. Alex has agreed to get Abby to her piano lesson on Wednesday, so I don’t have to worry about that.
Then, tonight as I was reading my evening devotion, God gave me a final blessing in this Scripture passage:
“As for me, I will look to the Lord, I will put my trust in God my savior; my God will hear me!
Rejoice not over me, O my enemy! though I have fallen, I will arise; though I sit in darkness, the Lord is my light.” ~Micah 7:7-8~
And one of the next verses in my little devotional book is:
“God is faithful and will not let you be tried beyond your strength.”
~1 Corinthians 10:13~
Now, how cool is that?? 🙂
