My, goodness! What a wonderful yet unexpected Labor Day I had with this little girl! Since moving to the area, I’ve been wanting to check a river that is just around the corner from our house. With the beautiful weather and no immediate plans, we decided today would be the perfect day for a bit of exploring! Madeline enjoyed putting her toes into the cold water and looking for little fish – It was the perfect ending to a simple Labor Day!
However, things quickly changed when Madeline stepped upon a piece of clear glass which inevitably led to slicing her foot open. We were so incredibly lucky as a few moments earlier a group of kayakers had just come on shore. What’s truly a blessing is that these guys are Service Members here at Fort Campbell and of the group, one just happened to be a Physician’s Assistant at Blanchfield. He quickly grabbed his first aid bag and cleaned Madeline up so we could make our way into the Emergency Room. Thankful for such kind people and a sweet little girl who handled the situation like a champ! It wouldn’t be a true holiday without a little scare, right? ;]
