Freedom

Porch sitting

My Grandfather (Dano) and Grandmother (Bubba)

Every evening without fail

Dim yellow light

Occasional visits from Butchy Boy the cat

Wanting an ear scratch or two

Frequent comments from Bubba; an occasional word from Dano

Today we sit

Same porch

BG and I

Enjoying the rhythm of the waterfall

Waterfall of Dano’s planning

Silent fish movement

Faint sweeping breeze

Thoughts of gratefulness

Their sacrifice

Their love

Their efforts

  1. Mary Kay,
    Wouldn’t it be nice if we all took more time to “sit on the porch”
    these days. It seems, if we aren’t working, it’s still hard to wind down and appreciate all we have. Don’t work too hard. I hope to see you this weekend!

  2. Julie,
    Thanks for viewing my blog!
    I am so excited that you are going to come this weekend!
    Would it be difficult for you to bring the calendar stamps and your calendar? I would like to finish it, if possible, in addition to some other projects. You will be proud; I purchased one more cutting tool-Martha Stewart, so I can keep up at your classes!!!!! I love my Basic Grey technique (when I have a sharp knife), but this will work better in a “speed” situation!!!!
    I can’t wait to see you,
    Terry
