I am from.....

This is a really cool idea- I wish I could "link" you to where I got the idea but i'm not tech savy.....her blog is owlhaven (http://owlhaven.blogspot.com/) ..... she is amazing. (oh- maybe I did it?) Check her out and see what she is doing over there- pretty amazing stuff and a very cool family.
Here is my crack at it.....
I am from bicycles and toboggans, from Speedo swimsuits and ice-skates.
I am from the white house next to the gulley. Where club houses were built and first kisses were made.
I am from wild daisy’s calling in the wind , the stone driveways and oak trees 100 years old.
I am from big family Sunday dinners and freckles, from women cooking holiday meals and from Men who watch football. From women who wipe faces and iron dresses and from men who roll down grassy hills with their children.
I am from the “please mom one more time" and from the “Dad I didn’t mean to".
From the “my baby you’ll always be” and from “I’ll miss watching you dance”.
I am from Sunday school. My parents being my teachers. Confessions. Being the first female alter server. I am from being removed from the alter because I was a girl.
I am from where Whales used to swim and streets were lined with cobblestone. I am from an enchanted land surrounded by the sea and their stories are told through songs and a pint. From where everyone is welcome.
I am from the first man off of the boat during the war and from a man who chose to have a family AND serve God. From a women who re-found her first love just in time to say goodbye and a man still searching for his identity. From those who once loved each other but still love me.
I am from lined walls of my childhood. From missing photos long thrown out. I am from memories tucked away inside my head. I am from the memories of my family. I am from love.
