Thought for the week — Believe that tomorrow will be better than today.
CHILDREN
We believed in our idea of a family where parents and children could fun together. My mother loved children, her children, grandchildren and everyone else’s children. Mothers and fathers love your children, spend time with them and enjoy every minute, because they grow up so fast. Teach them all about life. Let them know that life isn’t easy so they can be aware of what to expect in life.
WHAT WOULD YOU DO?
What would you do if someone was stranded on the road? Would you stop and ask if everything is OK or would you call 911? Tell me what you would do. Send me topic ideas for “what would you do” along with your answer to this weeks question.
News is due by noon Friday. Any news received after this time will not be included in this column. News can be submitted by calling (434) 568-0596.
