Oh, what visions of joy are ours, if we'll just take the time to look!

With all the social, political, and moral confusion pervading our modern culture, a little rest on a porch swing does a world of good. In the same unique style that produced the best-selling Worms in My Tea and Other Mixed Blessings, Becky Freeman reminisces about the beautiful experiences of her life, from childhood to motherhood and everything in between. These reflections, both funny and thought-provoking, express a yearning in us all to return to the simple pleasures of "sitting and swinging and shooting the breeze".
