This is Me

My photo
I'm a displaced South/Central Texan living in Louisville Kentucky
I am a princess because I am a child of the Risen King! My background is Baptist, but believe I have a relationship not a religion. I married my childhood sweetheart and together we have raised two wonderful children and got them married off. I love everything about being a wife and mother. Now guess what? I am going to be a GRANDMA!! We are so excited for this next step in our lives.

Who's Porch Was This?

Have you ever gone by an old porch and wondered, who's porch was that? 

 Who lived there? 

How many watermelon fest have been eaten on that porch on a hot summer afternoon?

Many times in years past the front porches were the place to take the Family Photo's

 I remember when having coke in the refrigerator was not the every day norm like it is today. It was a mighty treat! We would sit on the swing on Grandma's porch and drink from the little coke bottles.

I always wonder why were they allowed to get into such bad shape? I'm just sure the lady pf the house would roll over if she knew what her house had become.

Big or small it seems all home have seem their days come and go. Family have grown up children have laughed, cried, run through the house with something mother said not to.

But thing always remains the same when I seen them... Who use to live there? What did they do?

What would be your question?

I get it! The wonderful old porches that hold memories for someone ... where are they now? ... and why isn't anyone there? ... I really don't understand how some homes can just be forgotten and abandoned ... I understand if a family can't care for a home any longer, but why let it go to ruin? ... I could go on and on ...

This post made me a little melancholy. I love porches and old homes, but hate to see them in ruin and abandoned. If only those walls could talk.

Porches are so wonderful! My grandma, aunt and we each had a porch. There are so many fun memories there. Those were the times that you didn't know as a kid would be gone someday...I'm glad that I really enjoyed those days on those special front porches.

I always wonder this same thing when I see an old neglected house. If only walls could talk! Great pictures.
