My friend Tom

Image: Happy Birthday to Tom Little, who is 92 years young today.

I have so much to be thankful for these days. I think it has always been that way, but I never slowed down enough to notice. Now, as I get older, that has changed. I have tried to slow down.

Thank you Rickey Freeland

Just wanted to give the community a heads up about my dome neighbor, Rickey Freeland (pic attached). In the 3 months since he moved to Italy, Rickey has logged over 30 hours cleaning and maintaining Upchurch Field (after games), and he has logged over 50 hours cleaning up the “Secret Garden” dome community behind the laundromat. He has done this simply out of the kindness of his heart, asking for no recognition or compensation.

What a wonderful blessing Italy citizens received on Wednesday, May 17!

Our first experience with the North Texas Food Bank mobile produce truck was a resounding success, and the volunteers were incredibly generous with their time and energy. Loving attitudes and helping hands were everywhere and everyone who wanted fresh produce went home with a full bag of apples, limes, potatoes, green beans, broccoli and zucchini. Over 100 local families were served on the Wednesday produce giveaway!
