On this Thankful Thursday, I am blessed by the gifts that Suzie Redd brings to my life. Suzie is a native of Picayune, Mississippi and a graduate of Mississippi State College for Women; however, she is an ardent LSU fan. She moved to Charleston with her late husband David from Orangeburg, SC. She and David met in New Orleans where she was in nursing school at the Baptist Hospital and he was studying at New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary. Suzie sings in the choir at First Baptist Church of Charleston where David was organist and Minister of Worship for more than 30 years. David and the late Dr. John Hamrick taught me how to worship. Suzie has so many talents that it is difficult to know where to start. She was a great nurse for years for her mother and David’s mother. She keeps all the music organized for the choir. She is an outstanding hostess and a wonderful cook. Of course, she loves Louisiana Cajun food. She brightens any occasion by just being there. On this Thankful Thursday, I am grateful that Suzie Redd is part of my life. Anne Cheek pictured along with Suzie has also been featured on this Thankful Thursday blog.

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