Come on in, sit a spell!


Come on in, sit a spell…

Growing up I heard those words often.

I grew up in a little community in the country where everybody knew each other.

Why, you just waved and spoke to everybody, never met a stranger.

You could sleep with your windows up, even leave the doors unlocked at night or while you were gone.

Times sure have changed, haven’t they?

But those days were the best!

I loved spending time with my grandparents, spent every weekend I could with them.

It wouldn’t be anything for family, friends, neighbors or just anybody to drop in for a visit.

And what would they hear?

“Well, come on in, sit a spell.”

People would be offered coffee or tea, and of course, a bite to eat… and they would just love sitting and visiting with one another.. talking, laughing, reminiscing.

Those were some great times.

I hope at least some of you had the joy and privilege to have had days like that.

They were simply the best!

So to all of you that drop in…

Well, come on in… sit a spell!!!!!!


About Christine

Hi, I'm Christine... glad to meet you!!! Who am I? Well, I'm a Wife, Mom, Grandmother, aka Nana. I've worn many hats in my 50 plus years of life, traveled many roads. Some good, some bad.... and well some just downright ugly. But....... isn't it that way for all of us? Why a site? Good question...... I love to journal, research, talk, be an encouragement to others and make people smile... I always seem to have random topics going through my head, a whole lot of been there, done that, what was I thinking, please don't follow in my footsteps moments... or just plain simple thoughts.... or remember the good ol' days.... you never know what's going to be the next topic.... most of the time, I dont either... But life is sometimes that way...... So I hope you pull up a chair, kick off your shoes and just sit a spell. Again nice to meet ya!
