A story with a happy ending and photos that will make you smile. It's a great way to start a Monday.
There was a tall chair next to a breakfast counter in the kitchen. Hadley, my five-year-old granddaughter, was inspired in her make-believe game, to be a superhero character, and she jumped off the chair, but miscalculated her landing and whack! She hit her head on the tile floor.
Hadley's vision was blurry, so her mom and dad loaded her in the car and headed for the ER. But on the way there, suddenly Hadley didn't recognize Mom and Dad, so when they saw Fire Station 12 on the way, they stopped and the paramedics put Hadley in an ambulance and rushed her to meet a helicopter which flew her to All Children's Hospital in St. Petersburg, Florida.
It's a story with a very happy ending. Even the doctors were surprised the "superhero" didn't have a concussion, and soon Hadley was back to normal.
How do you say "Thank you" to folks who helped you in an emergency? In our family, we bake homemade chocolate chip cookies. Hadley, my husband and I delivered six dozen to Fire Station 12.

Thanks for reading with me. It's so good to read with friends.
