Hello again everyone. Hope you are all doing well and enjoying the pretty weather and all the pretty flowers and the trees in bloom.

I hope winter is over, but it will probably come back. It’s still early even though it doesn’t feel like it.

I really enjoy all the seasons. I just enjoy life and appreciate it. It’s a day the Lord has made and I tell that to myself every morning and I’m determined to rejoice in it and be glad.

I visited Aggie Hatton in the hospital last week and was going to visit Hazel Hart, but she had been discharged. I did call her house, and someone else answered the phone and said she was doing better. She and Aggie both have been pretty sick.

Aggie was feeling some better. Her daughters were there visiting her, Carolyn and Delana, and they brought Aggie’s greatgrandchild to see her, a beautiful baby, and also Christy Hatton was there.

I was glad I got to see all of them. I hadn’t seen Christy in awhile. She’s all excited that her sister, Misty of Florida, will be coming to visit her with her two children. Her husband is in the service and will be leaving for awhile, and they will get to stay awhile. Her mother, Ida Hatton, is going to Florida for awhile to help them get ready to move.

I’ve been watching the Government Channel on TV and seeing all the damage the flash flood caused down on Colley. Roads were washed out and there was a lot of damage to the roads. Some folks couldn’t get out. Judge Jim Ward and all the county workers were working hard and doing a good job.

I love watching the Government Channel and we can see all the things going on.

I loved hearing Marlowe Tackett sing his song about life in Grandpa’s day. It brings back a lot of memories to me and I wish things hadn’t changed so much. I think people were actually a lot happier in those days and didn’t have to worry about a lot of things that go on now.

I’m glad my boys lived in the old Grandpa days, and they are glad too. We talk about it a lot.

I enjoyed talking with an old friend, Betty (Spangler) Asher in Columbus, Ind. Her mother, Beulah Hall, lived next door to me. I think Betty and her aunt, Novak Banks, are going to come visit me in May. I hope they make it. They came two or three years ago, and we enjoyed it.

I’m looking forward to our revival with Bro. Jimmy Jewell of Ohio on April 16 to the 21st. Bro. John Conn, our pastor, and the whole congregation invite everyone to come. We have a great church. We have a lot of young people and they are a big blessing to us. They are willing to do anything they can.

I went to our sunrise service at 5:45 a.m. on Sunday, and really enjoyed it. Bro. Jamie Niece preached, and we had some good singing. We had church at 11 a.m., Bro. Caleb Howard was the preacher. We had a packed house, and it was really good.

We are glad to have Bro. Caleb back home. He’s been in Ohio for awhile, and we missed him. This has been a good week.

My son Rob called. He has sure enjoyed having his daughter, Rocki and her husband Matt Hill, and their children, Elise and Daniel, visiting him for about a week.

I finished up my weekend with a cookout at Larry and Linda’s home. Kevin, Wendy, Rocky and Larry Kevin Day, and Chris, Sara and their children, Beau, Brooke and Gracie, were there also.

Does it sound like a good week? It sure was.

May God bless all of you. Try to be in church somewhere this week.
