Where I'm From

Sunday, August 04, 2013

I am from sandy beaches, from long summer days, and playing under the sprinklers.
I am from a house with lots of windows with summer breezes and scents of gardenia flowers.
I am from the Yates and Ormonds, Grace & Reese, Daddy Curt & Gramma Grace, & /Grampa Bob, all frugal, long lived and honest.
I am from the ocean, seashells, sunburn, and summer.
I am from the river, fishing with my cousin Nellie& Don, babysitting for Vickie & Betty,
I am from the family of pointy chins, who love to cook and camp in the summer.
I am from nature, the roar of the ocean, the thunder storms in the after- noons, the long walks through the woods, from the South with all it's traditions.
From my Daddy Curt who told me I could do and be what I wanted with my life, to Gramma who loved me no matter what.
From all the memories stored in the old steamer trunk at the foot of my bed from births, deaths, birthdays & weddings. This is where I am from.

    This was absolutely beautiful. It just sang with joy and contentment. It's so wonderful to know who you are and why, and to know the love that came with you.

Thanks for sharing this!
