Thoughts for the week: Life is too short to argue and fight. Count your blessings. Love the friends and family that are always there. Smile more often. Make the most of everyday. Have a great and blessed week. Love one another and pray for one another. We are glad that mother Letha Graham is home from the hospital. Michael Ward is still a patient at Vidant Medical Center in Greenville. Please keep them in your prayers.
