I guess most of you have heard the song "Coal Miner's Daughter"..it is a song that runs true for many here where I live! I am a coal miners daughter (though my dad is retired now)..and most currently..a coal miners wife. Coal mining is in most everyone's bloodline in southern WV and is something all are proud of as well. This week..we are celebrating coal mining in my county with the annual Coal Festival! Damon and I headed down this evening to walk around for a bit like we always do. Its not a huge festival by any means, we usually go just to see who we can run into and chat with for a bit, and of course see the mining displays they have each year. This year, with the tragedy that struck that unfortunately took 29 miners lives, they set up a display in front of the courthouse as a tribute to those who had fallen.
Hope everyone found something to be thankful for this thursday! :-)
