I could bitch about my 6 mile run tonight: my time was OK, but my stupid heel was sore.
Today, that doesn’t matter. There’s a friend with bigger problems who needs our support, love, thoughts, and prayers.
Blogger buddy Little Miss Runner Pants was on a bike ride Saturday morning, when her bike tire hit a crack the wrong way. She landed on her head and her face. She was wearing a helmet, which probably saved her life. But she split her lip in a few places and knocked out 4 front teeth. She’s doing OK, but she’s having a tough time dealing with how she currently looks. She needs to KNOW it will get better, but that’s hard to see right now.
She posted 2 pictures on her blog today. They’re rough, but Little Miss Runner Pants, you have to know that those things WILL heal!
My youngest brother-in-law was kicked in the face by a large steer (which is a castrated bull for you non-farm-raised folks) 2 years ago. He had 2 teeth knocked out, 2 teeth chipped, and a huge rip through his lip that went down his chin. The doctors had a clean a lot of manure out of the wound before stitching him up. Really.
Now, he looks GREAT! It took a few small surgeries, but he’s doing just fine. And since that accident, he’s nabbed this cutie (I say it like that because LMRP has expressed concern of never meeting anyone after this incident):

Leave some love for her here, or stop by her blog and pass on your well-wishes directly. Hang in there, girl!!
