Sign of the times :)
Here in the days of uncertainty. Trying to make due with what we have, and making due without. Everyone is turning to the simpler things. Stories I've herd from my parents of days long ago, when things were tough, are again coming alive in our everyday lives. Hours ago I spent the evening out in the backyard, with my family gathered around a bonfire. We went from music on my nieces i pod to the radio, to my daughter playing the latest songs she's learned on her guitar. We had too many smores and just plain marshmallows. We even threw some foil wrapped potatoes in the fire which were absolutely delicious an hour later. The hours flew by. Just talking and mostly laughing. An awesome time was had by all. It's amazing how many people I see with their own bonfires. Just spending time together in your own backyard. That's all that seems to matter.
