4th of July Weekend

Wow, I feel like I haven't blogged about my life in SO long! I definitely don't want to complain about how busy I am, because I feel SO blessed to have a life that ALLOWS me to BE busy! But whew - I have been a super busy gal! :) So, I guess I'll start with my weekend in Alpine, and by the way - I have really enjoyed reading all of y'alls 4th of July weekends!

Before I get to the fun stuff - will you please stop and say a prayer? Saturday morning around 1:00am a helicopter carrying 5 people crashed right outside of Alpine. It was transporting an elderly couple from our small hospital to a bigger one in Midland. There were no survivors. On board were 2 EMT nurses from Alpine, the couple, & a pilot. Everyone in our small town is DEEPLY affected by this as we all knew these people. The pilot was from Beaumont. Please say a prayer asking God to comfort the families of the victims, give them a peace & understanding, and allow them to heal with the Lord on their side.

On a lighter note - here are some pictures from this weekend. I took A LOT, but I'm too impatient to post all of them, ha!
