Wednesday Night Group: Pete, Mitch, Carol, MaryAnn, Robbie, Bruce, Bernie

On this Thankful Thursday I am thankful for Bernie Otterbein who is celebrating a birthday on April 20th. Bernie is one of the friendliest, most generous people I know. She makes you feel good just to be around her. Bernie grew up in Avon, New York and studied horticulture at Alfred State College. She is a member of our Wednesday night dinner group and adds life to the party. She is a fantastic cook and her chocolate chip cookies are the best. She is a star performer in the West Ashley High School cafeteria after a career at Orange Grove. She goes to the West Ashley High School basketball games and that just makes the students love her more. She is a very active member of St. Joseph’s Catholic Church. Her Christmas decorations are nothing short of fantastic. She is president of her neighborhood association. Wherever we go to eat, all of the children big and small she has known over her career come up to say hello. What a testimony to this caring person. On this Thankful Thursday, I am thankful for my friend Bernie Otterbein.

Thankful Thursday is a day set aside to recognize the importance of someone to your life. Let her or him know of your gratitude. Develop an attitude of gratitude. Say Something Nice; Be a Lifter. You will be glad that you did.
