My Birthday

Well this weekend I celebrated another birthday. I turned 28 on Saturday the 7th. My plan was not to do anything, but those plans got changed. I got several calls from friends and family wishing me a "Happy Birthday". Then I got a call from my sister, who was heading to Branson for vacation and Camryn's Nataional Dance competition, saying that my parent's were in a bad car accident. They too were headed to Branson but were about 40 minutes ahead of Andrea and Camryn. They were in the Bee Branch area about 15 miles south of Clinton, Arkansas, when a big SUV turned right in front of them and they hit that SUV going about 55 miles per hour. Daddy had a mild concusion with a completely sore body and Momma had sore ribs (bruising the next day) from her seatbelt and the airbag. She also had a spot on her shin that was swollen. Praise the Lord they were not hurt more than they were. Their car is made to crumple up and not jam the engine into the cab of the car. You can see pictures of their car at:
I drove up to get Momma and Daddy and all their stuff from there car and took them back home. They rested and drove on up to Branson on Sunday. They took their time, taking breaks to stretch and walk around so they would not get too stiff. They got up there around 3:00 p.m. yesterday. Pray that they will have a good time and that their bodies will heal quickly from all the soreness.

Well on Wednesday at lunch I am headed to Dallas, TX for the Premier Jewelry National Rally. I am pretty excited about it, but I have lots to do before then to get ready!

I'll post pictures from Rally after I get back!

Alison, that is terrible, but I'm so glad they are OK. By the way, tell your mom that I looked at her patio pictures and as always - I think she is amazing! Shonda
