In earlier American rural life, communities raised barns because many hands were required. These events occured in a social framework with a good deal of interdependence. Members of rural communities often shared family bonds going back generations. They traded with each other, worshipped with each other and celebrated with each other. Barn raisings were an integral part of life and socializing.

In our modern American life, communities don't mean nearly as much as they did back then. It is our family's goal to bring a sense of community back to our lives and those lives that touch ours.

   Allright. My hiatus might be over. I still can't promise a daily post, but look for something here tomorrow.  I try to tell myself to take a break, and it seems that all I can think about is going back to blogging. But things don't seem as ugly after a couple of good days and blogging is a good outlet for me. So, back to my ramblings. Get ready.
