About Me

My photo
I am a Christian. I am a loving wife to my Army-National-Guard-Recruiter-Husband of 15 years. I am a stay-at-home-mother to our four handsome sons. I am a photographer. My blog is about as erratic, eclectic and random as I am, painted with rainbows of photos and words that are hills and valleys you travel; so lovely sometimes that they hurt you. These are the stories of how far we've come in the last 15 years as Christians, as a family and as individuals.

Once Bitten

Last night around 9:30 PM while at a friend's home, Hayden was bit by a big dog. His injuries have been treated by his Pediatrician. He is as well as can be expected, they are only flesh wounds; he will heal completely. The dog did NOT viciously attack Hayden. Hayden tripped and landed on this 16-year-old animal who suffers from arthritus and the dog just reacted. It was still very traumatic to Hayden and me! Please be in prayer for our family, all of my sons witnessed the incident and it hasn't gone unnoticed that it has affected us all. Thanks for your prayers, love and support.

I will post pics of the above mentioned dog when possible.

Oh, my goodness!!!! Your family will definitely be in my prayers. I cannot imagine what you are going through. I am so glad that it wasn't worse (I have chills). It hurts me to just look at the pictures. Until you're a parent you don't understand that when they hurt, we hurt too. I pray that he heals quickly (physically and emotionally) and that it doesn't leave scars (physically and emotionally). God bless your family.

oh that's one of my biggest fears! Dog bites are so scary! I'm so glad that he's okay physically and I hope that all of you are able to heal from the emotional aspect of it all very quickly!
