Southern Comfort

I’m sure most of you have heard about the woman who survived for 5 days trapped in her truck.  My family and friends know that’s also where my hometown is.  Where I mingled and visited with most of them just three short weeks ago.

It’s a shame that a tragedy brings my and Howard’s old stomping grounds into the spotlight but thank God, the tragedy turned into a miracle.

The community effort alone makes me proud.

Also a little homesick.

Howard and I eat at Hannah’s Bar-B-Q at least once every time we go back to NC.  This past time, we went there with my mom and my memaw.

Buffalo Cove, where Amber lives with her family, is also the one place I would leave Alaska for to live out the rest of my life.  Ask any member of my family.

Welcome Home Amber, your amazing resilience is a shining example of Southern pride and resilience!

    Your mother told me that Amber Pennell was the one who waited on you three when you all went to Hannah’s this last time. Brings it even closer to home, doesn’t it?

    A lot of prayers of gratitude are going up from Caldwell County now.
