Thought for the week: A special thank you should go to all the women who have prepared all these great meals this summer and throughout this year. This is for all the churches. I want to say thank you and God bless you because our mother’s would be so proud of us. When someone asks you who taught you to fix those pigs feet, pintos and rice pudding, you say “Mama”.
