Where I'm From

I found this idea on another very lovely blog that I visit and was invited to participate in that post. So here I am...

I am from outside breezes, from Tide Crisp Linen and candles in the moonlight.

I am from the escarpment, lush and green, full of heavy musky fragrance and comfy familiar shadows.

I am from the Daisy and Cedar mulch carpet, from beaches and waves, seashells and sand between your toes.

I am from Jammie Runs and family bonds, from CJ’s, Grammy’s and Grampy’s and from mysterious relatives of another place and I am strong like them all.

I am from the details in a photograph to the antiques my mom has collected and a story to go with.

From twinsyohs and 6x to Mrs. Beasley and Pillsbury Dough Boy (and pool cue chalk).

I am from Gods workmanship, brought through much to find peace and freedom in Him. Because He knows the plans He has for me, plans to prosper me and not to harm me, plans to give me a hope and a future. Jer 29:11

I'm from Canada as are my relatives and relatives before them. eh? I am from Boiled Steak and Taco Night.

From the Race Car Driver, the Fighter for the rights of the child, and the blood is thicker than water mantra.

I am from the photos in the basement, too numerous to handle but too precious to loose.

If you choose to post this too...let me know, I'd love to look in! Thanks Ang.

I've seen this writing before and have thought of doing it myself. Think I will do that sometime soon. Thanks for sharing yourself!
