First Words: Hometown

"What would you do if the people you loved, the places you knew, disappeared without warning?
..."People disappear. Cats and dogs go missing. Car keys, stitch markers, your favorite sunglasses. But not your hometown. Hometowns aren't portable. You can't load them onto the back of a flatbed truck and roll them to a new location. Every now and then Mother Nature reaches into her bag of tricks and tests the mettle of a small town. She flings tornadoes and blizzards, fire and floods at them then watches in admiration as they bend, but never break. And they definitely never disappear without a trace."

Spun by Sorcery by Barbara Bretton

  2. I WILL be reading this one. I can't wait either... thanks for your sweet note about our view, it is the best part of our home and I don't take it for granted . I look out my windows all day long, I don't ever cover them with window treatments ect. Just today I watched baby chipmucks and a calf play outside. It is a blessing in my life.
