The Detroit Christian Church hosted their annual Thanksgiving meal Saturday evening, Nov. 13, at the Pike County Senior Center in Pittsfield. The Mark and Becky Winner family did the main meal preparations with others in the congregation bringing in desserts. Nathan, Wess, and I were among the 89 people present, and we all enjoyed good food and great fellowship. Again, thank you, Mark and Becky, for inviting us.

ON THIS ROAD CALLED LIFE,
You have to take the good with the bad,
Smile with the sad,
Love what you got,
And remember what you had.
Always forgive, but never forget,
Learn from your mistakes, but never forget.
Things go wrong.
But just remember, the ride goes on. (Saw on Facebook)
