Where I'm From

May 15, 2012
I am from the quiteness of the country,
from gravy biscuits and bacon on Saturday mornings,
I am from the brick house with land as far as you can see,
I am from the daisies,
the dandelions, making the ground look like an ocean of flowers,
I am from grace before supper
and the blond hair from Denise and Brian.
I am from the strong Christians
and strong personalities.
From always "keep your manners", and
"Treat people the way you want to be treated".
I'm from knowing who God is and
learning about him everyday.
I'm from Italians and the Irish.
From baked Christmas ham and wonderful family traditions.
I'm from the death of my mom and hearing about it daily,
the stories of my ancestors and how strong they are.
I am from love.
