This is such an idyllic picture of what life used to be like. it's so wonderful for you to share it. It's a time that may seem foreign to kids now, but it's time that should not be forgotten. In the paragraph where you were talking about the orange juice, I think some words might have accidently been deleted. But other than that little bit, it was a beautiful story. Thank you for sharing it.

I enjoyed this slice of Americana. Knowing that it was a true story made it even sweeter as I read. It makes me wish I could have raised my family then instead of now! Nice writing!

Enjoyed reading this. It made me really hungry for some good southern cookin' :). Also, your point was right on. So many parents today argue in front of children and it sets a very tension filled home for everyone. God blessed you growing up in a home so full of peace.
