This is Shirley. She is 74 years old.
She lives just outside the city limits
of Shelby, N.C.
Janice and I met her at the Ortho-
Carolina Offices today.
Shirley has a few broken bones.
How you ask ?
Shirley was thrown from a horse
pulled wagon....74 and thrown from
a horse pulled wagon.
Someone came up behind her and
blew air into a bag and popped it.
She asked that they not do that
again because of the horse.....
but they did, and the horse jumped
and turned over the cart she was
driving. (Did I mention that she
is 74 years old ? )
Her attitude is beautiful and she is
such a friendly lady. She presented
a photo album and showed us her
beautiful flowers. And, of course,
She said that when she was about
6 years old her daddy gave her a pony
and a cart. All the rest is history.
Shirley is anxious to heal.
She wants to get back on her cart
pulled by her beloved pony and live
life to the fullest. After all, she is
only 74. And her mother lived to be
94 years of age.
The way Shirley looks at it is that
if she lives as long as her mother
did, she still has another twenty
years to ride her cart and love
Get well soon, Shirley.
And God bless you.
Poopsie saw her doctor and got
a wonderful report on her healing.
She is happy today.
