What beautiful weather we are having. I hope everyone had a blessed Easter and was able to spend it with you family. All my children and grandchildren were home and we had a good lunch together and our great grandson Blake hunted Easter eggs with the help of granddaughter Emma.
We went to Midway on Saturday to the state archery tournament. Our Emma was the only Adairville student that qualified and she did great. We were so proud of her.
There are many on our sick list this week. Mrs. Ruth Washington had a light stroke. Remember her and her family in your prayers. Special people. Also, I saw where Timmy Stratton had to have open heart surgery and it was touch and go for a while. Remember him and Sue then go on face book and tell him you’re glad he is doing better. Jimmy Hart had a scare thinking it was his heart. I don’t think it was but he is having some testing. I have had my usual spring bronchitis so hopefully when it goes away I will be finished till winter. The trees are so beautiful but the pollen literally kills my eyes and sinuses. My dear friend Patsy Hendrick’s father is very sick and she is dealing with going to south Tennessee to care for him and her mother so I’m sure she would appreciate you lifting her and her family up in your prayers. I know there are many I have missed so for all the others we ask God to give you health or whatever your need is.
My deepest sympathy to the family of Mary Ann Angel. May you all have peace knowing she and Jim are together again. She was a wonderful person and I know you all will miss her terribly. Please be in prayer for this family.
Strawberry Festival is right around the corner so you will begin to see reminders everywhere. This is the 70th year for this festival and we want to make sure everyone enjoys it as much as possible. We want to feature local talent throughout the last 3 days, so if you are willing to sing for about 10-15 minutes or longer let me know.
Don’t forget coming up this Friday night is Nick Riggins and the Hard Dogs at the Country down in Nashville. Everyone needs to go out and show your support for our Logan County guys. Their songs are great and it will definitely be a fun time. It starts at 7 p.m. so you may want to get there early.
Coffee Bottom Girl
I always loved springtime in Coffee Bottom although my allergies were bad even then. I remember Dr. Threlkeld telling my mama one time the only thing wrong with her is we need to cut her head off. There are probably others that wish that had happened but thank God he didn’t mean that literally. I would ride a hundred miles up and down the road in front of my house on the not so gently used bike I had. I remember learning to ride on that old bike. We went up the hill to a pond one day to fish and when we were finished we started home with me in the front on that old bike. As I started down this hill a car rounded the corner way down the road. Being the inexperience biker I was, I forgot all about the breaks and took the ditch. I had two really bad looking knees for some time. Daddy said why did you do that and of course I had no idea. What great simple times those were.
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”
