In December 2005, my husband and I traveled to Maui to join our son and his fiancee for a "destination wedding." The wedding party also included the bride's parents, sister, and brother-in-law.

Three days before the ceremony, on Christmas Eve day, I was walking along a grassy shoreline near our hotel, and stepped on a piece of rusty metal, which penetrated my foot. My husband was out snorkeling at the time, but the father of the bride was sitting nearby and quickly came to help me back to my room. He then went to get my husband.

We'd love to hear from you!
