I have news….. but first, let me say this:
This post probably needs a TRIGGER WARNING.
See that beautiful little face in that picture? I know that little girl… She is my most precious grand-daughter. She’s a teeny tiny 2 year old, full of all kinds of sparkle. She calls me “Mimi”, and isn’t that the most fun name for a grandma?!!
Well….. a horrible tragedy happened yesterday, and I’ll let you know upfront that she is okay — well, she will be okay. Things are not completely okay yet — but the immediate danger appears to be over.
I’m not sure I should go into details at this time, so let me say it this way. That sweet little girl was terribly injured by a 120-pound dog, and she now has significant injuries requiring many stitches and staples. She was rushed to the hospital and her wounds were tended right away, so yes, she will be okay, but she has a whole lot of healing to do.
So Mimi…. aka Mimi BEAR is jumping on a plane and flying overseas to Texas to help care for this little girl while she needs a whole lot of extra tender, loving care.
Why am I telling you this?
I am telling you this because I will be a little absorbed in travel time this week.
My internet time will be more limited while I’m traveling. I’ll be a little slower at getting your comments moderated, and I’ll be slower with emails, etc. This was obviously an unexpected event, so my jumping over vast oceans and deep blue seas was not pre-planned either. I’m scrambling to get myself from Australia all the way over to Texas as quickly as possible.
I’ll catch back up, so please have patience with me.
per their usual Monday – Friday schedules.
Please write in if you have any concerns.
I’ll write more to you later, and I’ll get back with you re: updates. I’m sure I’ll have other thoughts to pass along too, as usual. Seems I often have extra bits to say….
For now, just saying this… sometimes when tragedy strikes, you gotta jump. And go fast.
And that’s what I’m doing.
Thank you in advance for your kind thoughts and prayers.
