I am from….

I am from…..

I am from a cozy couch where I drink my coffee.
I am from homemade kitchen cooking and a big cozy king sized bed.
I am from the Midwest in a ranch style home with 4 bedrooms and a large basement with a man cave.
I am from comfort.
I am from the salt of the earth.
The bright orange/red Maple whose long gone limbs I remember as if they were my own.
I am from singing Christmas carols and togetherness.
From Joan and Robert.
I am from being a part of team and looking out for one another, and silliness.
I am from treat people the way you want to be treated and if you don’t have anything nice to say don’t say it at all AND “I love Annie, boo-boo-boo-booboo-boo-boo”.
I’m from purchasing Chevrolets’.
I’m from Geneva and Germany and meat and potatoes.
From being a toddler and only sitting on the counter being fed by my brother Billy; who obliged willingly.
I’m from “memory boxes” collected by my mother as I was growing up.  From tons of photo albums showing how I grew up, all in my heart.
I’m from a small town, born and raised with a good moral compass and hard work ethic.
