All About Me
Dawn - edging ever closer to 30, although I still feel like I'm 21. :) I'm married to a youth pastor ('Big G'), and have THREE wonderful kids: a five year-old son ('Little G'), a just turned two year-old daughter ('A'), and our newest little girl blessing, Baby R, was born May 28/07!! They keep me hopping as I juggle them, my WAH part-time job as an accountant, being a pastor's wife, and of course hobbies like quilting, scrapbooking, and blogging!

Help, I've fallen!
It was 10:59am on Sunday morning. Most of the congregation were in their seats, waiting for the worship singing to begin. The youth worship team that I help with had just gone up on stage and were getting ready to start. One of the singers whispered to me to ask if I could grab her forgotten water bottle off the front pew for her. I went up the couple stairs on the stage and handed it to her, then turned to come back to the piano so we could get going.

Something went terribly wrong.

I'm still not sure whether I tripped on something or just had an episode of pregnant brain and forgot how to walk, but suddenly I somehow found myself launched forward and sliding down the stairs on my right knee, coming to land in very ungraceful fashion at the bottom (only after knocking over a small table, of course).

The church collectively gasped and I heard several "are you alright?"s as I quickly tried to regain my composure. I felt every eye on my back as I made my way to the piano as quickly as possible - I knew I had about five seconds to get there while the adrenaline surged through my veins before the pain kicked in. I sat down on my bench and, ignoring the anxious looks of my team, started right in to the first song.

I did manage to make it through the worship set, although there was a searing pain in my knee every time I depressed the pedal - and I tend to overpedal, so that was a lot! When I got up from the piano, my pants were kind of stuck to my knee, which upon investigation I learned was the result of a pretty serious oozing scrape. I didn't seem to have any other visible injuries, so I rejoined the service, again feeling everyone's eyes on me as I walked up to the front to sit with my husband (who hadn't even seen me fall and was confused why I was limping!).

I'm feeling much better today, although my knee is definitely bruised (on the inside, apparently, since I can't see much on the skin). I was worried yesterday that it was going to be a fairly long-term injury because if I sat down for even a few minutes, my whole leg was just throbbing up and down. Fortunately it vastly improved overnight and I think I'll be back to running (well, if I wanted to) by our trip to Breakforth this weekend!

Oh my goodness...this morning a lady fell at church and broke her foot. How frightening. Hope things are better for you this week.
