My Sweet Baby James

I have you fast in my fortress,
And will not let you depart,
But put you down into the dungeon
In the round-tower of my heart.
And there I will keep you forever,
Yes, forever and a day.
Till the walls shall crumble to ruin,
And moulder in dust away!

from The Children's Hour, by Longfellow

Oh, that I will never forget these days and moments.


  1. Wendy your blog is one of my new very very favorites! I love the way you write and the way you try to enjoy every moment and the way you LIVE life...thank you for sharing with me! You inspire me!
    And I just laugh at Abbie's cute little remarks...and your James is a cutie! Glad you learned how to post pics!
    Your life seems a world away from mine, picking vegetables, repairing hen houses, swinging on a porch swing, wheelbarrow rides...what a wonderful life! You make me feel like such a city girl...wait a minute. I AM a city girl! ;)
    If someone told me I needed to pick the tomatoes and can them...I think I would fall in a puddle of tears.
    Can you say L.A.Z.Y.?????
    I think you are one great country momma! I am a country momma wannabe, but I think I just like the dream of being one rather than the reality!lyzacxi

  2. Hey, thanks for dropping by our blog! I know, CDW and her sister totally crack me up. Glad to meet another Alabama country mama! I'll visit you "regular" as my grandma would say.
