Memorial Day combined with Indy 500 Day left us with two post-church congregational activities rather than our usual "grab lunch, go home, and collapse" routine. We had a really nice time at the first party, and then made our way to the second.
The second, unfortunately, was not as peaceful. As we entered the backyard, we found that our hostess had just apparently broken her leg. We had arrived just in time to see her flanked by three EMTs that were attempting to get her safely off of her pool deck to the ambulance. Getting her to the hospital was covered, and so was her husband getting there as well. She did ask for her cell phone, so Katie and I went to find it. Next to her phone, I noticed her digital camera.
Knowing that my friend blogs, I thought of the one thing I could do....I yelled across the yard "Do you want a picture for your blog?" "Oooh, yeah" she exclaimed, so I snapped a good one with her giving a thumbs up sign in the back of the ambulance.
Am I really so far gone that this is what I thought of?????
(To be truly fair, I also know that she uses her blog to keep in touch with friends and family all over the country and the world, and this was news I am sure she would be wanting to share.)
Please do keep my friend in your prayers. Right now her family's livelihood depends on a job that involves a seriously long weekly commute. As brave as she was, I am sure that this thought was in the back of her mind as all of this happened.
