so you prayer warriors out there can say a few for my husband. he was moving bulls around this morning...from farm to farm...so they can do their "thing" you know...and came across an accident scene on rt. 10. this is a very busy road that goes thru a section of wooded area...regardless he said there were people all over the place. so...he stopped...with the stock trailer and all (bulls were already unloaded :) ) to see if he could help. turns out a woman had hit a deer with her car, and she was concerned about the deer, because it had been injuted pretty badly. those of you who know my husband, know that he enjoys hunting and has a million and one guns and wouldn't you know didn't have one on him? :) so...he decided the best idea would be to pick up the deer (which was still alive, but not doing well) and load it into the stock trailer, and take him to a more quiet place to rest...
wouldn't you know as he was loading it, it skitzed a little bit, and kicked his right middle finger ~wide~ open...down to the bone. YUCK. so...the story goes on and on...but he spent 3 hours at the doctors getting some stitches, so now we pray that he can heed the doctors instructions, and that his finger has no ill effects from this injury. it could be a little tricky as it is around his knuckle, but there was thankfully no tendon severing.
you know sometimes i complain to him that i feel "cheated" a bit, because it feels like we don't see him a whole lot...usually because everyone else does. :) he would do anything for anyone, and this is a prime example of how he lives his life. he serves others...sometimes i am offended it is not me and my family...but that is *my* issue...i am thankful for a God believing husband who works very hard providing for us, and spends time helping others, even when it isn't convenient for him or me. :)
needless to say i didn't get to the store today, but i did finish painting my *new* office (can you imagine the disasterous shape my house is even in? with four kids who basically self entertained just about the entire day...so i could get this painting done?) and even sold a puppy...hopefully another tomorrow. here's to a better rest of the weekend. and cleaning up the house tomorrow because i am beat and going right to bed. cheers. ~mk~
