I really enjoyed reading this story - It reminded me of the wonderful memories I have as a child of swinging on my grandmother's porch swing - I'm sure this story will illicit a great number of memories for many people.
And the memories flow with the tears...such sweet memories of our own porch swing :-) This was a blessing to read!

The end reminded me of what Winnie the Pooh once said: "If you live to be a hundred, I want to live to be a hundred and one day. That way I will never have to live a day without you."
I love how this story unfolds with reminiscing . And this made me smile, "And you would always have a place to sleep if you were in the dog house…" I could see this family living through their good and bad moments on the porch swing.
