The beauty of the soul shines out when a man bears with composure one heavy mischance after another, not because he does not feel them, but because he is a man of high and heroic temper.
- Aristotle

My I Am From Poem

Thanks to Melli for sharing her poem & for encouraging me to post mine. *s* The poem was written by George Ella Lyons.

I Am From

I am from from the Peach Festival place, from Folger's, cinnamon rolls and fried peach pies.
I am from the mountain hideaway with creaking doors, barnyard animals, laughter & love.
I am from the yellow rose that graced the walkway with its glorious scent and the strawberry patch where dreams & jam were made.
I am from weekend camping trips and huge meals, from my dad and my momma and Grandpa O.
I am from the land of corny jokes and churning butter.
From childhood superstitions and wet tobacco for spider bites.
I am from no religion to Southern Baptist to let's just relax on Sunday.
I'm from Tacoma Washington, home-made yeast rolls and chocolate gravy.
From the twin brother who chased me through a barbed wire fence that caused me to get stitches for the 1st time, the sister who convinced me that I could walk barefoot on hot coals without getting burned, and my granddad who taught me that laughter is good medicine.
I am from cedar chests, filled with priceless treasures such as school photos, awards. and home-made Mother's Day gifts.

Quiz...I Found a Good One! LOL

You Are Sunrise

You enjoy living a slow, fulfilling life. You enjoy living every moment, no matter how ordinary.
You are a person of reflection and meditation. You start and end every day by looking inward.
Caring and giving, you enjoy making people happy. You're often cooking for friends or buying them gifts.
All in all, you know how to love life for what it is - not for how it should be.
