Just a small town gal and that is all I'll ever be,
where life is just another iced sweet tea away,
where you can see the twinkling stars at night,
the wonders of the moon,
and puffy white clouds floating across the blue sky.
Welcome to my blog from the heartland, full of random musings, observations, reflections, things I love, events in my life, humor..

The day is winding down 
It is quiet now
Gazing at the long shadows 
Stretching across the yard
As evening approaches
Memories traverse through my mind
Of times past
Weekends spent with grandparents
Cousins, aunts and uncles
Football and baseball games
Foot races, blind man bluff
Jumping rope, Red rover,
Pony cart and horse riding
Laying on the cool green clover
Watching the clouds float by
Building snowman, and making snow angels
Sitting under the shade trees  
Visiting with family and friends
Children's laughter filling the air
 
Several generations have
Enjoyed this yard
Although time moves on 
Children of the past are now grown
With grandchildren of their own
This family still full of cousins, uncles and aunts 
Another generation will have
Many memories of their own
Activities on this earthly carpet
 
 
"Memories of a childhood that we loved. What a wonderful place to be"~ 'Home is where the heart is' ~
 
"Time has a way of slipping by but the Echoes of the past linger in the distance." unknown
