Where I Am From
I am from a round dinette table and four chairs with white metal backs, from Kool Aid and love.
I am from the dark, cool living room with Little House on the Prairie turned on.
I am from an Aloe Vera plant making boo boos better and the morning after a storm.
I am from pizza on the coffee table and stubbornness, from McCoys and Andersons and Braggs.
I am from excitement first and thinking later and fierce loyalty and shyness.
From who loves you baby and accidents happen.
I am from the church altar and going forward at the invitation..
I'm from Oklahoma, fried Chicken and Wacky cake.
From Dad bringing me chocolate milk everyday after Kindergarten, playing at Mom's office while she worked, and Master Lee's Karate center.
I am from a park in Virginia, Make A Wish day, good grades are important but not as important as love.
From family being all that mattered.

Where I Am From
My friend Martha made me do this. I wish I saw her more often so I could still call her Marth Brooks like I used to when we were young and we could still sing country songs super loud together. I could use some fun like that in my life. She has a precious blog called 50 Sticky Fingers which is the best blog name ever in my opinion. Anyway her post today told me to do this and I decided to listen to her. I will let her explain exactly what it is I am doing here. It was a pretty fun diversion. I hope you'll try it too and if you do I hope you will leave me a comment letting me know where I can read about where you are from.
