My first day off and my brother was here!!!
I was excited to take William to the city to let him
see a different side of Zambia,
plus I had a long list of shopping to be done.
|William and I shopping|
Well, God had other plans.
Wouldn't you know, that within the first hour of being out at the stores,
I BROKE MY TOE!!!!!
I drove us to the emergency care hospital
and there we spent the rest of our day off.
When they discharged me,
I had to drive the two hour drive home with a throbbing foot.
William helped me so much during this time.
He even carried me to the kitchen and sat me on a chair,
so I could tell him how to make dinner.
Now that I am healed, it makes me laugh,
but during that time, I just wanted to cry.
Because I work with preschoolers,
I had to find some kind of armour, to protect my little toes
from their, heavy, clunky school shoes.
So, I wore this special boot pictured below.
It is amazing how God made our bodies!
My toe is still crooked.
Every time I look down at it in disgust,
I am reminded that God has His own plans.
