Howard Christmas party set

Hello everyone, hope you are all doing well and enjoying this pretty weather.

It was good to sit on my porch and drink a cup of coffee and eat a sandwich Saturday morning. It felt so good I actually did some outside work in my yard and it felt so good to get tired. I haven’t been tired in a while. I’ve been a lazy person lately for a while.

I had a nice long talk with Judy Greene, over an hour. She had foot surgery and is still in a lot of pain. I hope you feel better and will be doing well for our Howard Christmas party on Dec. 19 at Cowan Community Center.


We are all looking forward to the Christmas party. We’ve been having our gatherings in the summer at James Pennington’s and it’s all been great, but the family wants to have it at the center, where we always had it when our parents were here with us.

We have a lot of great memories from there when we had all of our family. We are so blessed to have as much of our family as we have.

It was nice running into my good friend Sally Taylor at Save-A-Lot store the other day. We sit together at church along with my cousin Ida Hatton and Henrietta Absher and anyone else. Sally was excited she was going to her grandchild’s birthday party.

We are all like that, aren’t we? My grandchildren have all grown up, but we’ve got a lot of great-grandchildren, all beautiful, and we really love them. We don’t get to see them as often as we’d like, but we love them and keep up with all they are doing.

They stay a lot busier than I was when I was growing up and I think they are smarter too. Don’t tell anyone I said that.

My brother Hubert and his wife Joyce have been to their lake house. I stopped by to see them and they weren’t home.

I had been to the funeral of James David Griffith. I had never met him. He was the son of Minerva Hays, who was a good friend of mine. We went to Bible study at Dairy Queen every week and we loved it.

My sister Kathleen Brock has been having a lot of health problems. She needs everyone’s prayers. She has been to see the doctor three days in a row. I hope they get her feeling better.

My son Rob went to Louisville for a check-up and went on to a dance recital for his granddaughter Elise Hill and for a birthday party for his grandson Loren Hatton, both in Lexington.

I went to Calvary Temple on Friday night to a singing where Bro. Conard Profitt is pastor and really enjoyed some good singers and preaching and seeing some good friends there. I’ve not been getting out much, don’t like to drive much.

I’ve been thinking about this a lot. When my husband Clyde was so sick in the Veterans Home, I was about at my wits’ end and four words came to me, “This too shall pass.” I’ve used it a lot and it might help someone else. Try it.

We are all so happy to have our great-grandson Beau Hatton back home and he’s getting ready for college here.

I hope we have good weather till Christmas. I know a lot of people are going to be going home for Christmas.

May God bless all of you. Try to be in church somewhere this week if you are able and I wish all of you a merry Christmas and happy New Year.
