"It happened in a flash".

I hardly know where to begin with this post, other than to say this was a very frightening incident.

Li'l Mama and HK riding in the ambulance

along with Mister.

I'll begin at the end so you'll know that everyone is fine now.  (big sigh of relief)  This all happened earlier this week and I'm just now finding some time to blog about it.

Here's the story.
Mister met Lil' Mama and HK in the parking lot outside the AT&T store.  Mister was carrying HK as they walked across the parking lot.  He somehow stumbled over the curb and fell.  HARD.  He managed to shift himself a bit as he fell trying to protect HK from hitting the sidewalk.  She received only a small bump on her head but he hit the concrete face down.  You can see where his glasses cut his nose.  They said it happened in a flash.  Mister bled a great deal, (from both inside his nose and from the cut on the outside of his nose.  An ambulance was called and they all rode together to the hospital.  HK checked out perfectly and Mister went home with a crack in his nose along with 7 stitches, and scrapes to his arms and legs.

They (Mister & Lil' Mama) said that helpful people seemed to immediately appear upon seeing what had happened.  Two people come with towels to help Mister stop the bleeding from his nose.  Another man ran to his car and came back with a first aid kit and began to help, while yet another man brought cold bottled water.  Two women employees from AT&T came from within the store and helped Lil' Mama (who had a bit of hysterics) and HK into the store where they calmed them both while waiting for the ambulance.  Lil' Mama called me from the store.

Three things I'm reminded of 
as I think about all this -
1. Life can change in an instant.
2. There are still lots of good, helpful people in this world. (Angels, unaware?)
3. God is merciful.

Praise GOD all is well!! You are so right - all of life can change in a blink of an eye! We are one heartbeat away from eternity.
I am always amazed but never surprised at how God provides. He puts the right people exactly where they are meant to be.
