Holly Ridge Happenings
The Mastery of Self
No one is responsible for your emotional reactions except for you. Others can say and do anything they like but what happens inside you is only the result of what you are thinking and feeling. We are not all in the same boat. We are in the same storm. Some have yachts, some canoes, and some are drowning. Just be kind and help whoever you can.
Stopping by one day was Dr. Lester Wayne Johnson and his son. They had carried their kill (a deer) over to Monticello processing. They got them an ice cream cone and were on their way. It had been quite a while since I last saw him. New years day was a great day for us at the store! I had cabbage, blackeyed peas, ham, my mama’s old fashion mac and cheese, candied yams, cornbread and pies. As many peas and cabbage that I ate, I should be a “lot richer” Ha! just joking.
My hope is not in this coming year, But in The One who is coming back.
