Justus Jones and Tyler Herrington cooking their beef. Mothers Day 2018 was different I celebrated Mothers Day without a mother. My mother, Doris Beauchamp passed away on May 3. Momma was a great mother to my two brothers, Lloyd, Mike and I. She could do any thing and most of the time she was very busy working on one project or another. Her hands were never idle and when we were growing up, she never let us sit idle either. Now, Im thankful for parents who taught me to work when I was young. Our father dren to work young, they never will work. We were blessed to have good parents who were willing to put a lot of effort into raising us. They always had time for us and we always knew we were loved. John and I had stopped in to see Momma on Wednesday evening and she was cooking string beans and new potatoes in one pot and stew ing squash in a frying pan. When I opened the back door the aroma of those fresh garden vegetables my brothers had given her came rolling out the back door. As we visited, she told us that Mike had given her just enough squash to make one batch of squash relish. She said that she planned to work in the yard the next morning and can a batch of relish that afternoon. My cousin, Carol, stopped by to visit with her Thursday morn ing, they talked sewing, canning and to plant after Carol left. About thirty minutes later, Momma called Lloyd and said she didnt feel quite right. When he got to her house, she was gone. This might be too much infor mation about her last hours, but we are so thankful that right up through her last hour she was as busy as could be. She was still able to live alone and take care of her own business. Mom ma was always very independent and at 89, that independent spirit was just as strong as ever. I personally am thankful for my two wonderful brothers who did their part and then some, taking care of Momma through the years. Momma character came shining through dur ing her latter years. Another thing that we are so thank ful for was the many friends who stopped in to see her since she had given up driving this past year. Momma always had friends and lots of them, she enjoyed people. There are many people who will tell you that Miss Doris taught them to sew, quilt, make pickles and can, garden, upholster furniture or weave baskets, just to name a few of her tal ents. The woman could do anything she set her mind to. Those friends never really forgot her, they made time to stop by or call and visit with her on the phone. What a blessing those friends were to her. She made my prom dresses, my child, Carrie, was born she designed and wove a bassinet out of cane and reed. Then she made the skirting for the bassinet stand and made tiny turning 89, she had made a beautiful quilt for her great granddaughter Car oline. Momma was a pretty amazing woman and a huge part of my life. Friends and acquaintances were always calling her and asking how to do something, she was the queen of DIY (Do it yourself project). I ny was Google before there was a Google. I found a good quote that pretty much summed up her later years. I believe this quote could be a lesson another goal, or dream a new dream. C.S. Lewis. We are all so thankful to have had such a good Mother and Granny, and thankful she could stay busy right up till the end. Sadly, she went so fast I never got to give her another hug. So if you still have your Mother, please give her a hug, and call her often. One day you will be glad you did.

Section A, Page Four GILCHRIST COUNTY JOURNAL THURSDAY, MAY 17, 2018 By Angie Land Heart Matters One of the things I enjoy about Facebook is reading different quotes, scriptures and song lyrics my friends post. What we feel compelled to share will often speak loud and clear about what is going on in life at the moment without having to share the gory details, which by the way, I highly recommend-a wise quote is highly preferable to the gory details! Anyway, a few days ago a young friend shared this thought: Love means never having to say youre sorry. I do love new love and speculated that she had a new boyfriend, and at this point he can do no wrong-not yet anyway. Actually, this famous line originated in a popular 1970s movie called Love Story, and as romantic as this may sound, nothing could be further from the truth. Real love, between two real people, often means saying youre sorry. Because real people make mistakes, are careless with words, and have bad days. This produces a need for real love to include apologies by the offender and forgiveness by the offended. Since the role of the offender will be played by either party at one time or another, it is critical for both to learn to forgive when they are the offended. In their book, The Five Languages of Apology, Dr. Gary Chapman and Jennifer Thomas declare that an apology is the only thing that can enable genuine forgiveness and reconciliation. Further, how that apology is presented is also able to offer true forgiveness. Havent we all witnessed the less than heart-felt sorry mumbled between two siblings whose parents forced them to apologize? Come to think of it, havent we all offered a halfhearted apology just to keep the peace when we secretly fumed about not being wrong? These are not the kind of apologies that leads to strong, healthy relationships. When trying to overcome an offense, one of the biggest challenges couples face is realizing what they actually need from an apology. Some need to hear I am sorry from a spouse who has never uttered those words. To some, simply saying Im sorry without asking for forgiveness or accepting responsibility is not a real apology. To others, the need for the offender to make things right is the only way they will feel like justice has been served. What do you need from an apology to offer real forgiveness? What does your spouse need from you when you are the offender? According to Chapman and languages of an apology make all the difference in how it is received. They include expressing regret (actually saying, I am sorry), accepting responsibility (I was wrong), making restitution (What can I do to make things right?), offering genuine repentance (I will try not to do that again) and (Will you please forgive me?). languages, realize that what you need and what your spouse needs may be different when it comes to apologies. Next, be willing to offer the kind of apology that will open the heart of your spouse toward forgiveness. You may just your marriage growing stronger as you practice the art of a wellspoken apology, because every heart matters! New Hope Baptist Church 4470 NW CR-236 P. O.

Letter to the Editor With all the tragedies our community has had to deal with recently, we wanted to report a kindness Act that happened on Saturday, May 12th. A kind man saw a purse on the side of the road on County Road 341 and stopped to check it out. In an attempt to get it back to its rightful owner, he took it to the Agricultural Inspection on duty found our phone number in the purse & contacted us. The purse belongs to our step-mother and she apparently forgot her purse was on the back of the car as she was leaving to run errands with Dad in Bell. Thank you so much to the anonymous citizen who turned it in and to the wonderful staff at the Agricultural Station that were so proactive to get the purse back to its owner. We are so blessed that we live in a kind and caring community. J.T. and Marsha Mahoney Editor, Gilchrist Journal May 10, 2018 I am shocked that our County Commission would let emotions of the moment overwhelm their normal budgetary hearing procedures and potentially wreck the County budget. Due to the Sabal Trail pipeline, the County is about to receive a large increase in tax revenues. Up until now it appeared that those monies would provide a means of the County meeting its jail building requirement plus other needs. That possibility just got blown away. The increase approved (stated by Sheriff Schultz to be $968,000 annually) is greater than the Countys increased Sabal Trail tax revenue, so the County will need to Sheriffs Department increase before money for the jail or any other County department. It would seem that the only remaining source of funding the jail will be to raise taxes. Having been a Sheriffs Volunteer for about 4 years I support the Sheriffs Department and I support raises to the deputies. However, I do not think we citizens can afford to have one department dominate the budget to the exclusion of other needs. I think the Commission majority let us down in their knee jerk approval without having carried out normal budget process hearings and review. Therefore, I think the Commission should rescind the action; then start over and redo an increase to the Sheriffs budget going through proper hearings. Sincerely, Lowell D. Chesborough Letter to the Editor Discounted Swimming Lessons Submitted Stop by the Tri-County Community Resource Center to access discounts on childrens swimming lessons this summer! process.

Bulldogs enter final week of spring practice By Matthew Harrell The Bell Bulldogs held an open practice Friday night as they get ready for their last week of spring practice. Head Coach Joey Whittington said the energy and effort have stuck out to him this spring. Weve had good senior leadership so far, Whittington said. Our run ning backs, some of our skill guys and linebackers, theyve brought it this year as we try to replace our of fensive and defensive lines from last year. Those positions stood out during Fridays open practice. I felt like we had really good linebacker play tonight, he said. The running backs...ran really hard. There were some bright moments on the offensive line, we need to get more consistent, but I feel like were coming along since were replacing everybody. The Bulldogs will close spring ball by traveling to Branford Friday night at 7:30 p.m. for their spring game. We just want to play physical, be tough, be competitive, and see that we can do the fundamentals that weve been working on for the past three weeks, Whittington said.
