I has just been one of those "wacky" weeks here....we started off with having to go to Chattanooga to pay traffic fines. You know, I am not a big fan of those traffic cameras....this might even push me into having to write someone in government...and we really don't want me doing that!!! LOL My son went with me to a craft show, as we were driving to find the place he apparently made two wrong turns during the weekend at the same street....the camera got him at $50 per ticket...ouch. And to be honest, we still don't know for sure what he did wrong...with that said, we will probably just skip that show next year.....
After paying said tickets...we had a few other stops on the list...either we couldn't get what we needed or the person was not in that I needed to see....yep, the theme of the day was set. So trying to end on a positive note, we stopped at Sam's Club to pick up a few things. My hubby was feeling better and was out with us, and wanted to take the Sam's tour...in other words, find out what food samples were available. I grabbed all the stuff we came for, ran into a couple of friends and chatted...then headed for the checkout. That is when I heard the loud "crack" behind me. My husband had tripped, fell, hitting his head on the concrete floor...Major OUCH!!!
First, I was really worried and went to help him. He had a big knot on his head.... There has been so much talk about people not caring about others or wanting to help...but I have to tell you that was not the case. Right away two ladies that told us they were nurses ran over to help...the people at Sam's were there right away to assist...others stopped and offered to help...a sweet lady walked by and placed her hand on my arm and said "I will pray for him..."--I can't explain it exactly but we get into that autopilot of saying "I will pray.....(fill in the blank)" and sometimes it does feel like just an automatic response..like "God Bless You" when someone sneezes..but there was something so sweet and genuine in her response that really touched me. Then there was the big older military guy that came up to my hubby and just talked with him in such reassuring tones....then reached down and took his arm and said, "Let's get up now buddy."
There was the woman that stood by our cart till we came back and then just left....I didn't think till later that she was watching not only our cart, but my purse was there and open, anyone could have walked away with it in all the confusion. And the sweet women that moved me ahead in the checkout line so I could get through it quickly after John was up and headed to the car.
I can't express enough how much I appreciated each and every one of these dear folks....and trust me, I will pay it forward so someone else will know how it feels.
John is stubborn..he wouldn't go to the doctor as the nurse suggested. And he still has a knot on his head and it ia sore, but he is doing much better today.
This week has been rough....hopefully, we have gotten this stuff out of the way and the rest of the year can be a bit smoother.... I have some new patterns to play with, a new class I am taking, the moving furniture and redecorating the house bug has hit, and more going on. So I am going to take a breather today and then I will be back on with some new things..
My experience with John has reminded me of doing the Heartfelt Challenge with you...so be prepared, I will be adding that this weekend.
Hugs to you all!!!!!
