One of the best things about being Wesley's mom is that she tolerates my obsession with churches and cemeteries and willingly stops with me every time I see one. Friday when we were leaving Seagrove we passed by Fair Grove Methodist Church and I had to stop. As we got out of the car another car pulled in the drive and this nice southern man called out "hey lady, if you want to go in, the door is open. We are having service here next Sunday and there will be dinner on the grounds. You are welcome to come, we would love to have you." Now THIS is what I love about the south. Where else are you going to have an encounter like that on a Friday afternoon?!
I'm sure that those of you that live in Seagrove know this church. It is a beautiful old country church on the way to Whynot Pottery and I am usually on my way to visit Meredith and never have time to stop. So glad I had the time on Friday and so glad Wes was with me. We are thinking that we might just take the nice folks of Fair Grove up on the offer and show up next Sunday for their service.
I hope all of you have a great Mother's Day. I am lucky to have Wesley home and today we spent the day with Gerry's mom and dad, brother and sister, brother and sister in law, had a nice lunch and lots of laughs and good conversation. For Mother's Day I have asked to go see Tim Burton's new movie Dark Shadows and then dinner after. Dinner and a movie, what could be better! Did any of you watch Dark Shadows when it was on TV? It used to terrify me, but all my friends loved it, so I would suck it up and pretend I loved it too. Even the intro music scared me. What a whimp I was! But I think I can handle it now and Tim Burton makes great movies. Hope all of you get to do something fun with your families too. XOXO
HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY!!!!!
