(L to R clockwise )
My father – after crying because they didn’t have a Coffee mug at Six Flags that had “Cledra” he said “you don’t drink coffee. Get out of the habit of wanting what everyone else wants ”
My husband –after wrestling with what I thought God said he said “when we want to hear God say yes we don’t look for any other answer in His word. We have to listen for his answer & not decide the answer”
My Bishop James Griffin –he did our premarital counseling & said “Cledra focus more on your reactions than on trying to change Eddie. Only God can change a man”
My granddaddy —after talking to him after the funeral of one of his sisters “chippy if you’re gonna stay around a long time you gotta get good at saying goodbye”
not a veteran but not short on advice My granny—her last words to me … “baby don’t let that weight get on you “
Happy Veterans Day!!
