I am not sure if you grew up in the “country”, but the back porch is a special place. It is where community happens. A place where laughter and tears can be found among family and friends.
In the spring, it is where we look for the buttercups to peak out on a warm sunny morning. Where we see baby birds taking their inaugural flight as mama birds cheers them on.
In the summer, it where we sip on sweet tea and marvel at the stars. It’s our workplace when the produce from the garden is picked. Corn to be shucked, beans to be snapped, potatoes to be washed.
In the fall, a place to relax in the cool air. Maybe listen to a baseball or football game on the radio.
In the winter, a place for hot chocolate, snuggling, and a good book.
All during the year, it is a place for sharing lives together.
Welcome to the Back Porch.
