“Bead Therapy”

Description from Violet: Hi all my Chickie friends.... I needed to create this pick to look at all my pretty purple beads and pearls to help me stay calm..... I am away on a trip.... and this evening my husband, Eric, was in a bad car accident.... He is O.K....
he just got out of emergency and is headed home.... a badly bruised leg... lots of soreness... I'm sure will be much more sore tomorrow.... I am thankful his guardian angel was watching out for him and it wasn't any worse.. but it is so stressful not being there..... I can't get home until tomorrow.....
the car is totaled... so he is very blessed.... and I and thankful.... !!!!!!!!

    Hi, Violet! We’ve already chatted in the messages, so I’ll just say that my prayers are with Eric for a speedy recovery! So thankful only the car was totaled! 8O

    Another gorgeous pick from our favorite Purple Chick! Hmmmmm — which is worse? Being away from Eric or your beads when you’re stressed? ;)

    I’m glad to hear that DH was able to walk away from this with bruises. He will be sore for awhile, so keep the ice packs, hot packs and Tylenol handy! Be sure to take some pictures of his bruises – they will come in handy when you go to make your insurance claims. Meanwhile, keep up with your “therapy”.

    Violet, how awful for you! You definitely needed some bead therapy after this close call! So glad to hear hubby could walk away from this – I know you are anxious to get home. Fly safe, and you can play nurse for awhile! My prayers are with you both!

    Violet says:

    Thank you Sue….. another lady turned in front of him… he hit her car , then her car spun around and his car, so he got a double whammy… but… there were lots of witnesses… so there was no doubt it was her fault… she was also hurt… but will be o.k. too…

    How awful for your hubby and you to deal with this, especially when you couldn’t be there! Getting news like that just falls to the pit of your stomach but, thankfully, everyone was able to walk away from it. Great suggestion from K H about the pictures….we learned about that from our daughter’s accident. My thoughts are with you and Eric. :-)

    So glad he had Tori & Jake there for company…and boy, is this a stunning pick! I never would have thought of KH’s idea to take pics either…smart idea!

    I’m so glad your dear Eric was not seriously injured (although the bruises and soreness can seem pretty serious when you are suffering through them…ooch, ouch, whine…LOL). But at least, with your handy dandy wifely nursing skills, you can be assured that he will be back to his normal self in no time! In the meantime,I’ll be thinking of you and wishing him a speedy recovery! :D
    Oh, BTW, love that beautiful, purple pick!
