My Thanksgiving story

I am a 66-year-old senior lady who lives on Social Security and a small check from my past husband. I am thankful all the time, not just Thanksgiving. I try my best to help someone or touch someone if it is only a smile. I've always rather give than receive, but this story really touched heart and it happened to me.

Kershaw treasure

About two weeks ago, my son was married in Kershaw County. The Southern hospitality that was extended to our family was exceptional. I have been to weddings in many states and this location here was one of the best venues I have ever seen. The location was Rock Bottom Pond -- they have a great website (rockbottompondadventures.com) that shows what they have to offer.
