Thought for the week: If someone treats you badly, just remember that there is something wrong with them, not you. Normal people don’t go around destroying other human beings.
Sure wish this were going to be last of the cold temperatures and the nasty four-letter word that I am not going to say. It’s just no fun being stuck in the house. Of course, I got lots of knitting done and I have orders for 25 dishcloths, so kept pretty busy in the last four days.
Judy Chestnut is at Sunrise Manor Nursing Home for rehab, Rex Thompson is in Kensington Manor Care and Rehabilitation Center for rehab and Mildred Dorsey-Thompson had outpatient surgery last Friday at Hardin Memorial Hospital.
Thought for Today: Always pray to have eyes that see the best in people, a heart that forgives the worst, a mind that forgets the worst and a soul that never loses faith in God.
Let’s continue in prayer for the families that have lost loved ones due to various acts of violence, injuries, or sickness.
