My son and I are here in the Mid-West visiting my family. I forget the little things that count here. People are so friendly and will start a conversation with you right there on the street. The towns are small, the cities are far and few between. The country is filled with large pastures, the pastures in return are filled with cattle, horses, goats, small domestic farms, and large family owned farms. The air is fresh and sweet, the roads small and crowded. So nice to return to my home and family to have a break from the big city!
