On Grimmwood Time

We had a nice week at Grimmwood. My sister, Leta, was off for spring break. Sister Kristi took off Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. Time with my sisters is special to me.


On Monday I helped Leta at her church. Once a month a ministry from the Atlanta area comes to the church to distribute groceries to needy families.  Miss Patsy, one of the older ladies at the church wanted to offer more than groceries so she organizes the ladies of the church in preparing and serving a meal to those who come for groceries. They can eat the meal in the church fellowship hall or there are to go plates. We served 57 men, women and children on Monday. Twenty five boxes of groceries were given out as well as the gospel. The people who come up from Atlanta are so nice. The man who was the leader of the group told me the ministry was born when a wealthy man who owned a grocery warehouse saw how much food was wasted by just sitting in the warehouse so he did something about it and a ministry was born.  If you are interested in this ministry check out the web site above.

On Tuesday I did spring cleaning while Marvin got his bee nucleus. The bees stay in the small box for 24 to 48 hours then they are moved to their hive house.  I spent a lot of time stitching on my Christmas pieces. Friday the sisters and the niece headed to Dalton to do some shopping and eating. Saturday was really chilly and I spent the day getting ready for Easter.


Easter was a beautiful sunny day. Marvin and I attended the services at FBC Chatsworth where Laura is a member. It was a wonderful service with great singing( Up From the Grave He Arose and He Lives). The pastor brought a message just perfect for Easter. Then it was to Mother's house to eat lunch with the family.

I thought I would close with this picture from the grands corner.


I am going to be bringing a special addition to this play area. Be on the look out for it on Friday Faves.

What a wonderful week you had, Arlene! Time with sisters is always a good thing. Your niece Laura is so pretty. I hope there wasn't a lot of spring cleaning that needed to be done while you were at Grimmwood.

I am so glad you got to spend time with sisters. I am a tad jealous as I always wanted a sister. There are some great people in Atlanta that do wonderful things with their money. There is good going on. It just seems the news focuses on the bad too much. Bring back Charles Kuralt I say.

So glad you got to spend time with sisters and just time at Grimmwood is always special. Love Laura's dress. So glad you got to help at the church giving out food to those that need it. Have a happy Wednesday.

My sisters and I haven't all be together for several years. We see each other individually but not all together. They just live too far away and one is a teacher and the other a 24/7 caregiver, so it is nearly impossible to make it work. You are blessed!

Your week at Grimmwood sounds like it was wonderful!! Laura's Easter dress is very pretty, as is she. It is so pretty there and so green!

I'll look forward to your Friday post about the kids' corner!
