When the Bee Stings

So today after church I was walking to my car with Shannon and Cody. Jason (with Z) had pulled the car up to meet me. I felt a sting on my shoulder, and it surprised me. Another sting. I started screaming and dancing around the church parking lot. I knew then that a bee was in my shirt!

I was wearing a few layers (thank goodness!), so we got my t-shirt off (when J and I volunteer in the nursery we wear t-shirts), and with one last sting the bee flew away. It happened so fast I didn't know quite what hit me. Crazy!

I have never been stung by a bee before, and it's just no fun at all. My Mom told me to put a paste of water and baking soda on the stings, and my arm feels so much better. ; )

"Life" happens when you least expect it, so be sure to have a tank top on under your shirt!

ha ha ha! I'm sorry Katie...it's very unfortunate to have been jumping up and down in the church parking lot, but it sure did make for a great post!

Oh my gosh, I'm sorry! Maybe people just thought you were filled with the Holy Spirit leaving church today. ;)

im sorry. i know just how u feel but im allergic to bees and got stung at darian lake on a trip and got an allergic reaction for the first time and had all this callamine lotion on and then found out that i was allergic to lilacs which there were thousands of those trees and i just had a very bad day.

Angie said...

Yuck, sorry about your bee stings, they are the worst!!

Morgan said...

Katie, Why do these things always happen when you are pregnant. I have the worst luck when ever I am. Just a few more weeks.

Lauren said...

OK Girl, at least you weren't allergic and had to go to the ER AGAIN! :) You and your tanks, I remember that from college! Maybe I should conform in case I find myself in a situation where I need to rip my clothes off! Ha!

I got stung by a bee on my hand in 4 different places, 2 of my finger were so bad, that I ended up in the ER. I don't recall what they did, because I was in so much pain.

Katie -

I just got news - I'm so very sad for you - may God give you the strength to deal with all of this. No words can possibly describe how much I'm hurting and praying for you right now. You once gave me a picture when I had a very painful experience that talks about God's plans for us are sometimes not our own. I want to give it back to you right now. I love you so much.
