I missed church. I still am not able to go, but each day is better.
I have not been out. There is no news in our little town. Things are smoother than silk on the outside. Inside, I am not so sure. No one know what goes on behind closed doors. Charlie rich, if you can remember.
Wednesday Hump Day
I will not get to go to Bible study tonight. I am coughing too much. I go back to the doc on Friday.
Watch for school buses and the children crossing the roads. It is good to know your children are safe at school.
It’s been 23 years of making tea for my man. 8,395 gallons in 23 years or a gallon a day. that’s 8,395 cups of sugar. I just don’t like to make tea anymore.

Lewisburg School and Wilson family, prayer going out each day for you. Losing a small child must be the worst thing. Jesus will help you through it. The comfort words. We will always ask why. God has a plan. Amen. Bless you and all the Wilson family.
Not much coming in, too much going out. Be saving what you have. There are lots of rainy days ahead. be an ant, not a grasshopper.
Family is blood, but friends are forever.
The Coursey Reunion is Aug. 25 at the Sportsman Club. Come early and help us set up and bring drinks and a covered dish and something for the sale. See you there.
I hope I will be well enough to go this year. I didn’t get to go last year. It didn’t seem right after my sister Annabell Sumner and brother Donald Richmond were gone to be with the Lord. I still miss them so much. I remember things we did together and the fun we had. It makes me smile.
Down Memory Lane
I can remember as far back as four years old. My little brother came and took the baby spot. I had to start growing up. The older siblings were all gone from home. Letters would come and mom would read them to us, so excited with every word.
Brother Ed was in the Navy in WWII.
Brother Lyle was stationed in the U.S. Army in Germany. Sister Mary moved to New Jersey.
We were always excited for someone when they were coming home. It seems we were always waiting for something. I’m sure mom worried while she was taking care of the family.
The World War was always in my childhood. I didn’t know what war meant. I knew it was something bad from hearing the grownups talking. I always worried about war and bombs as I grew older. I could understand more about what the grownups were talking about. But I felt safe at home with Mom and Dad. Dad was a praying man. Nothing would happen. I learned to pray at a young age for the Lord to keep our family safe. I am still here. It must have worked. Thank you lord. Amen.
I went to the store today. It’s been three weeks at home trying to get well. I am going to try and go to church in the morning. It’s the Lord’s day. I have already missed two Sundays.
I had company today. Ricky Rager and family and Dylan Rager came to see Memaw today. It’s been a good day, nice weather with lots of cool air. That’s such a good change.
Happy birthday to Mr. Steve Prince.
God bless you.
