One of the reasons I love going to Cracker Barrel restaurant is because of the big porch with all the rocking chairs. Somehow just walking by that porch reminds me of a small town, a slower lifestyle and a more relaxed atmosphere.
I would love to have a house with a porch with several rocking chairs. My grandmother had a screened in front porch that had a couple of rockers and a porch swing on it. I remember taking naps on that front porch swing when the weather was nice and spending hours playing on the floor of the porch.
There’s just something about sitting in a rocking chair, sipping on iced tea or lemonade, listening to the birds and crickets, and enjoying the view outside. I now miss the slower pace of Arkansas, though when I was younger I didn’t appreciate it as much.
It’s nice now and then to remember the days gone by, I am thankful for the memories.
