Home is.....

Driving to church in Daddy’s pick-up
Singing two Fanny Crosby hymns
Sleeping late and then taking an afternoon nap
Sitting around the kitchen table
Playing Scrabble
The smell of bacon for an alarm clock
Warming by the wood stove
Watching the children climb the magnolia tree
Teaching Sunday School
Rocking the baby
Polishing the silver pitchers and ironing tablecloths
Having lunch with 35 people
Laughing and telling stories
Saying the blessing at every meal
Taking care of each other

Looks like you grew up in the same place I did . . . and the picture could have been taken from my Granddaddy's porch. Lovely post.
