Wow! Happy Mother's Day! You deserve it. I am so glad yours wasn't the accident we saw yesterday. I had to read all through your post to make sure it didn't say SUV. There was one in Springville that flipped and a car, like yours behind it. I pray those people are okay. Big hugs for you and hope you are doing well enough to use your new shoes.:O)
