insights from a daughter of the King, teacher, farmer's wife, and Mommy


31 Days of Random Writing: Day 27

We live back in the hills
where we hold on to the past
one of the stories we hold on to is Tom Dooley
My grandmother taught 3rd grade for many many many years and loved local history
Her cousin, whom she was good friends with, also loved history
And actually wrote the song Tom Dooley that Kingston Trio recorded
So I grew up hearing these stories all the time

This week at school Owen sang the song Tom Dooley with his class
and then he came home and learned it on his mandolin
I know there are two ladies in heaven smiling down
That the legends have been are carried on

Pleasant words are a honeycomb, sweet to the soul and healing to the bones. Proverbs 16:24 Leave me some honey.
