Well, Thanksgiving is over and Black Friday is underway when this paper comes out. I hope everyone took at least part of the day to thank God for all our blessings. Hope everyone was able to enjoy some family time before heading off to the crowds to try and get a bargain. The Christmas season is upon us and is one of my favorite times of the year. I love the hustle and bustle and the wonder of Christmas. The love sent down that first Christmas seems to warm everyone’s heart.
As you are doing your shopping don’t forget Saturday is Small Town Shopping Day, promoting your small town businesses. Remember money spent in your town normally stays in your town.
The Chamber dinner is Tuesday night, December 1st. If you call city hall today you might be able to still get tickets. It will be a great night with great food and entertainment.
Keep Anthony Hallman in your prayers. He fell about 20 feet from a deer stand last Sunday and had surgery on Tuesday at Vanderbilt. He had 2 broken vertebra. He is the father of two of my grandchildren, Alana and Alton, and grandfather of Blake. Best wishes for a speedy recovery go out to Anthony and thankful because it could have been much worse.
Coffee Bottom Girl
I have so much to be thankful during this special season of the year. I am so blessed that it is hard to begin to say all that I am thankful for. I am thankful for my family, friends, city, county, and country. I am thankful for my health even though sometimes it is difficult to get this body going. Arthritis though painful is so much better than other things I could have. I used to hit the floor running in the mornings, now I just hope my legs will move when they hit the floor. I am thankful for being a Coffee Bottom Girl. Here’s wishing you and yours a Blessed Thanksgiving.
A Hui Hou Kā’Kou
“May the road rise up to meet you
May the wind be always at your back
May the sun shine warm upon your face
And the rain fall soft upon your fields
And until we meet again
May God hold you in the palm of his hand”
