Mountain memories

 Honoring your sacrifice today. Thank you is never enough. 

Some pieces of my heart came to visit this weekend. While I don’t have children of my own, I claim my nephews and niece as my own. They are a true joy. Before they and their parents left we took a little trip to the North Carolina mountains for lunch in Saluda, NC. There is something about an old-timey Main Street that makes my heart smile. 


Bring the 

Cool breeze 

And majesty

That makes

You put

The phone down


The curves

In the road

And cherish

Ordinary moments
