But the good news is that the matter will soon be concluded, over, and done with for good. Time for me to put it away and look ahead to the long weekend and our upcoming vacation.

You're all the sweetest people I know after my Mr.
You're the best.
Praying for you. Hope it turns out the right way!

Hello Christmas friends! Hope y'all have a great Wednesday. It's been a long week, so I hope Carl is making something good tonight at the Pines!
Things are still emotional, but the sun is out today and the weather is nice, and I believe something that simple is helping everyone around town. As a teacher, my wife is still having a hard time with what happened at the schools that were hit, and at her own school. Tomorrow will be emotional as they allow the kids back in the schools (those that weren't directly hit) to say goodbye to their friends and collect personal belongings and see their teachers.

Well, y'all have a good day!

If there's anything I've missed in the posts I am sorry and hope everything is going good for you all!

Having grown up in a similar situation, it really is about the time spent together not the money that you have and I'm sure that you were a great mom!!!!!

Maybe that is why they come in so often and love shopping there. I am glad that I get to talk with my customers! That is really sad about your brother-in-law's job.
God forbid we develop a bond with our customers, all management cares about is money, the customers are just a hassle to them now. Go figure, they are the ones who buy stuff, but we can't help them like the customer wants. This is one of the many reasons why I am trying to get out of there.

Praying for you and your family
keep up the good parenting!
We are trying to teach them, they have seen weather documentaries about tornadoes, and lightning, and like them. It is just when it happens here they get very scared which I understand.
