“‘What’ Try your best to be tender with the young – compassion for the ‘aged’”
By Frances Brewer
Good morning. Well Tri-Bee where were you last week? No news is good news. Sometimes it could be the first cup of coffee had not had the after affects; or could be that the bird feeders were empty; or the recliner was indeed very comfortable. So on and on, but for sure the evidence of spring on Coon Creek is on the verge of brightening up. Even out here over the weekend lawn mowers could be seen and heard. So lets make ourselves content, stop complaining, making excuses just hold up your shoulders, put the right shoe on the right foot then be sure you’re on the right path as you start out be sure you’re going to the right place. Okay! If you’re not qualified under these circumstances just let us know when you might think about writing a column for your county paper. Boy it’s amazing what this two hours with the yellow pad and pen will do for you. What will it do? Old timers will or can happen over night. Keep smiling.
Yes Tri is the meaning of Trinity Church on 441, six miles out of Madison and Bee is for the Bethany Church on Bethany Road. The attendance at Trinity church was well attended for both services on Sunday. Even though a number still rather closed in. Pastor Jerry’s family was all able to be back. The church van picked up a number of new ones. The children’s church is really a blessing and how the workers are appreciated. The Ladies Fellowship met in the fellowship hall on Tuesday night planning for the new projects coming up.
It seems to come to no end when trying to keep in contact with the closed in ones. One of our seven year-old girls at church Madison McQueen, daughter of Austin and Julie McQueen was quite ill and still is under the doctor’s care
Estelle Slaughter’s daughter Susie continues to look on the bright side yet rather closed in.
Dorothy Bumgarner has her calendar filled with appointments and was in Alabama Monday and Tuesday for different test. Dorothy enjoys friends and family members calling and coming in.
Gerald Cathey has really had back problems recently and is back and forth to Emory. Gerald is employed at Georgia Experiment Station for a number of years and we trust he will soon be able to be back soon. Gerald is the youngest of the Cathey boys.
Our sister Sadie Porter, 95, will be 96 in March, at this writing is in St. Mary’s Hospital recuperating from surgery following a fall two weeks ago. At the time it happened no surgery. Yet with problems surgery was necessary. Sadie’s response when asked how are you feeling? Oh, I’ll be all right. We hope so. Well the Lord willing our other sister Kate Cathey will be 97 year-old Sunday the 24th. Too still hasn’t completely gotten over a broken ankle. Yes that old hymn “Pick up the broken pieces.” Well Tri-Bee what bout’ it? I’m already falling apart. It will be like putting a jigsaw puzzle back together.
Now where has everyone been lately?
Estelle Slaughter enjoyed Mary Ward and Dorothy Higginbotham having lunch with her on Sunday.
Nell Porter and Janice Philippi and Sara Nell Craig had lunch with Julia Gay Sabbadino on Saturday in her home near Greenville, South Carolina.
Getting back to the sick ones Crew Brewer has been a patient in Rockdale County Hospital but is back home and hopes to be able to be with his wife Hilda who had knee surgery on Tuesday.
The Haley – Brewer families met Saturday morning at the Cracker Barrell for their tri-monthly get together.
I enjoyed having supper with Nancy and Julie Synder on Heidi Trail Monday night.
The Friendship Club met at Buckhead on Wednesday for their monthly meeting.
Whoa! Day Light Saving Time is around the corner. Time is changing so is everything. Yet God is the same always!
