This weekend in my hometown, the city celebrated the 100th birthday of our beautiful courthouse which sits on the hill in the middle of town.
When I was growing up, the courthouse was the center of activity. Taxes were paid there, drivers licenses were issued along with marriage licenses. I got my drivers license and my marriage license there. 4 H competitions were also held at the Courthouse so most children in town were familiar with this big edifice. I also remember playing on the steps of the courthouse while my parents got their drivers licenses renewed or paid taxes. I think those things really give a child a sense of place and belonging to a community. So Happy 100th Murray County Courthouse. You are looking good.
I am also asking for prayers for my mother this morning. She was admitted to the hospital with vertigo and a UTI yesterday. She was feeling a bit better when I spoke to her in the afternoon. I am so thankful for my sisters who live there and take care of Mother. Marvin and I had planned a trip this week so we will be heading that way on Wednesday.
Have a good day friends. Do not forget to get your Valentines ready for tomorrow!!
