Thoughts While Shaving for March 5

Spread the love

Spent some time with a dear friend yesterday … Do that from time to time … We traveled some of the more rural roads in the county, no rush, just sharing memories … Only plans were to be in, or near Garland ’round noontime’ … We accomplished our mission … Enjoyed BBQ, corn bread and collards … delicious home style cooking … We solved lots of issues, have not figured a way to lower our age … but that’s OK … Both have a long life in Bladen full of great memories … and, life continues to be good … Age does cause some limitations…

We visited Southeastern Carolina Crossroads nestled in or near the state forest … off Susie Sandhill Road … A place for males dealing with alcohol or drug issues seeking to ‘kick’ the habit … and they do great work…

One of their leaders shared they are adding beds … no more room, just better utilizing space they already have … Bunks will be 3 high … All an effort to help those who need help to get it … If you have slightly used clothing, they are happy to receive. Yes, cash is welcomed, if you prefer, Either can be dropped off at Bladen Baptist headquarters near CVS … in Elizabethtown … Crossroads does great work…

While on the subject, there is a similar group for ladies only, in the Ammon area … 2 totally different organizations…

Oh yes, lunch was delicious … Ate in the car … and had food leftover, nothing wasted…

I went to sleep with that on my mind, slept well, except usual crazy dreams and overslept, failed to make an early morning appointment I had planned … But, that’s OK … living life at a slower place, having a good time … sharing with friends … and family … Life is good.

With Crossroads in mind…

“You can have everything you want in life if you just help enough people get what they want in life.” Zig Ziglar

“Those who are happiest are those who do the most for others.” Booker T. Washington

“To ease another’s heartache is to forget one’s own.” Abraham Lincoln
