BYH to all who have yard signs supporting NC hog farming. Yes, farms = food. And clean water = life. Reasonable people...

Jan. 13 Bless Your Heart

Bless your hearts to the lady and son from Vanceboro who took my husband to Vidant ED after his accident in Nash County last Thursday. You two are truly God's angels. Thank you.

Can someone please tell me how to get a refund for the nonexistent Blake Shelton concert? Sorry to bring this up again, but I am out $400!

BYH to the Greenville City Council and its creepy fascination with where people sleep. If there's too much student housing, owners will have to reduce their rents to compete. That's good for students. If there's not enough market-rate housing, property managers can raise prices. That's good for owners. The market creates winners and losers. It will reach an equilibrium on its own without government hemming and hawing about it.

My mother always said, "It is better to laugh than to cry." I miss Heather King's laugh. Very few, if any, can cackle like the King.

I can’t help but wonder if the money made by red light cameras that goes to schools will be given not just to teachers but also to classified employees who have not seen many raises in years and also are underpaid. A raise is given then taken back by increase in insurance. Just a thought.

Bless your heart, the Kingdom of Heaven is within. Don't be bothered by the world.

BYH to The Daily Reflector delivery. I live in the western part of Beaufort County and the delivery person has not missed a day during this storm and yet my local paper and even the post office has not delivered in three days. Bless you and stay safe, Daily Reflector deliverer.

Bless your heart to my sweet mother. I love you.

BYH to President Bush and President Clinton. Where is the money that was supposed to be used for the rebuilding of Haiti? We all want to know now! Everyone needs to ask their representatives and congressmen and women and find out now.

Bless our hearts to eastern North Carolina. We have truly endured some very cold weather. Let’s all hope that we won’t have to go through this again.

Bless the hearts of the greedy corporate people. It's a shame you won't let your employees use their PTO (paid time off) for the snow days they missed. Not everyone can get by with 24 hours missing from their paycheck.

Bless our hearts against these divisive times. I, myself, will go with the words of Black Elk: All things are our relatives, what we do to everything, we do to ourselves. All is really One.

BYH to everyone who doesn’t realize how blessed they are in comparison to some who don’t have as much as others. Sometimes we have a tendency to take things for granted. With a new year coming in, let’s do our best to help one another and not hurt one another.
