Rocking Chairs...

It has always amazed me how various items can conjure up such detailed and specific images. Some of them can stay with you all the time. I love what comes to mind when I see rocking chairs. I picture warm summer days and glasses of iced tea (or lemonade.) I picture wrap around porches and sunsets. Sometimes I hear children laughing and playing. Sometimes I simply see David sitting to my side, slowly rocking, watching the world go by and wishing it would slow down. For some reason, the idea of growing old together has always included a pair of rocking chairs. To me, they represent love, a slower time, and a few less worries or cares.

  1. I am so in agreement with you. That's exactly how I picture dad and I in a few more years. I love rocking chairs - so nostalgic.
