Good Days and Bad Days



Life is simply good days and bad days mushed together in random order to create a journey. Saturday was one of our terrible days. :(
Drew wrecked his bike and fell down a concrete drainage ditch. He had his helmet on so the important stuff was protected, but he really took a beating to the face. I have held strangers as they've bled into my hands; I have comforted the terminal while they slip into death's slumber without shedding a tear, but when I saw my busted up little baby, my heart EXPLODED! After six stitches and five hours at the hospital, we returned home to finish healing. It will take about six months for his wounds to heal, but I am so thankful that God protected my little boy...it could have been so much worse. I know that God loves us and sustains us through our good days and our bad days, and for that I am eternally grateful.

Poor little boy! I can't stand for my baby to hurt, I can't imagine her being so busted up, I would have been a wreck! Good thing he has such a good mama to love on him.

Oh Amanda, I am so sorry! I hope that he gets feeling better soon.

Hope Drew's healing is going well. I had the privilege of helping in Primary on Sunday and everyone of those kids, I'm sure, have said a prayer! Hope you're feeling well!

I'm a wreck just looking at the picture! I do hope Drew is feeling better and you too.

Oh my goodness! Bless his little heart! That was a rough fall, but I'm so glad he is ok!

Amanda! I just discovered your blog... and I'm so glad that I did! What a beautiful family that you have. WOW... time flies! It doesn't seem that long ago that you were one of my girls in YW!

I'm so sorry that your sweet little boy got hurt, but prepare yourself... boys are so very prone to stitches and broken bones. The last time I had to take Josh in to urgent care he made the comment that we should get a discount for being a frequent customer!
