Holly Ridge Happenings

Well, Friday was not the usual day at Thompson’s. Let me tell you, God is Good. 

When the person come into my place  and said “give me your money”, I thought he was kidding. No he wasn’t but God took care of me, God had two deputies less than three miles from me. Le me tell you, our R.P.S.O and the sheriff are great. 

The 911, the medical workers, investigators, all are wonderful. I’ll not name  names for fear I will leave one out, you know who you are and may God bless you all! I’m so thankful to God and you that I’m still alive and well!
