The comfort and rhythm of rocking chairs plays an important part in my life. Throughout my growing up years, our home always had some sort of rocking chairs on the front porch. Family and friends spent idle time rocking, chatting, or just enjoying the sights and sounds of the world from our front porch. Following the family tradition, our front porch is also home to a couple of comfy rockers.
I have special memories of spending "rocking chair" time with a wonderful friend on her front porch. Over the years, we would rock and chat as our growing boys played in her front yard. She lost her battle with breast cancer four years ago. She left us much too young. I thought of Carol today as the sun cast its light across the empty rocker. I long to rock, chat, and enjoy the company of my very special friend. Carol's light still shines in the eyes of her son and daughter and in her precious mother... and in lucky friends like me who shared the rhythm of her life in a front porch rocker.
