Out of the mouths of Babes...

Friday, April 09, 2010

My hubby ,toddler and I were at the park yesterday,enjoying playing in the sand, when we heard a scream from one of the children on the swings nearby.My back was to her so I didn't see what had happened. My hubby saw the whole thing--evidently a 10 yo girl was swinging fast & jumping off the swing but somehow she had flipped BACKWARDS from the swing,doing an unexpected headstand in the sand and screaming when she came up about her back. We went over to her to calm her & her dad kept her lying down ,calling 9-1-1- as he didn't want to move her b/c she said she could not feel her back. My toddler asked right then if we could PRAY FOR HER to get better and "not be scared when the ambulance came." So we did. I hope she is better. My 2 and 1/2 yo amazed me yet again! emoticon emoticon

    I'm also one who loves to see what comments I get on my blog.. I'm also trying to get better at commenting on others, I'm loving the fact that the teams put up all the blogs members have posted so I can go through there and read up on what all my friends are up to.

Looking forward to seeing more posts from you and don't worry about the comments, taking time with your toddler is more important!

    On this journey, so many of our paths intersect, and we experience the same thing....reading how others felt the same, experiences the same struggle remind us we are not in this alone. When people share victories, we are reminded of hope, and that we too can do this....
Sharing encouragement with others as they struggle, is what one does when they unite!
I think it is great that you have made friends, and use the networking to build on!
Keep up the good work!

Gotta ask...What's a "Garmin"? Is it a brand name for your pedometer? (I wear my pedometer everywhere!)

Keep up the emoticon work.

    What energy!! You should feel really proud of your achievement! Not being able to play with kids/grandkids has to be one of the hardest parts of being overweight/unhealthy. Love your blogs!!
