After a whirlwind weekend with the grandchildren J.J. and Ella Allen, Granny Kelly Bond was found at Urgent Care on Sunday, which had to be evacuated due to the storm.
Then on Monday evening she was in the Medical Center ER on the night of a full moon. Standing room only in the waiting room. As a witness to this, I was impressed with the organization and efficiency of the staff that evening. Of course, I was not in pain.
J.J. and Ella were also visited by Great Aunt Krissy Clark, who came in for the weekend.
Following breakfast today when it was time for the morning meds, the “pill for the day” container was empty. My least favorite weekly chore is dividing out the daily morning and evening doses of medication. I’m sure many of you love this weekly task as well.
It seems like time is passing much faster as I get older and it’s not fun having a weekly reminder. Besides, I always drop at least one pill and it can never be found. Where do they go?
We have some relatively new residents in the community. Seth and Jamie Williford, formerly of Bowling Green. Seth is with the Logan County Sheriff’s Dept. and Jamie specializes in grooming dogs. She does this in her home. If you would like to have your “best friend” spruced up for the holidays, call Jamie at 270-991-5588 to make an appointment.
We’re dancing to the music of Old Habits tonight at the Auburn Senior Center from 6-9 p.m. Potluck is being served, bring sandwiches, chips and/or desserts. Doors open at 5:30 and admission is $3.
Next week’s schedule on Monday following the walking group will be a movie and popcorn at 11 a.m. The center will be closed Wednesday through Friday for the Thanksgiving holiday.
New Friendship Baptist Church had a Haitian group, Blessing Production of Sermathe Haiti, as guest performers on Sunday evening. NFBC became acquainted with the three young men while on one of their mission trips to Haiti.
On Monday at 5 p.m. “elves” are gathering at the Pool Room for “bagging” of Christmas for Kids of Auburn items, etc. As it seems to be throughout the land, charitable donations are down compared to previous years. That’s not unusual in today’s economy, but children have yet to learn about the ups and downs of economy. They still believe. They have dreams and deserve to have their eyes light up and little hearts beat faster, smile and laugh in their joy.
Remember how much fun it was just to get that bag of fruit, nuts and hard candy each year when we were in school. I swear the smell still lingers in my memory.
You could be an elf by contributing in several ways. Just talk with Gayle Gregory or Steve and Chris Montgomery.
And Thursday count your blessings one by one. Share them with family and friends. Be thankful for the freedoms we have in our country, and for the many lives forfeited to protect those freedoms. Remember those hard working people throughout our land who have sometimes toiled both night and day to feed their families and the rest of the world.
While enjoying the fellowship of Thanksgiving we need to be very thankful to God for his many blessings bestowed on us. God Bless America, especially Auburn, Logan County Kentucky and her people. Have a blessed day.
