Your Happy Place
Kim Roam sitting on a beachAs you loyal readers know, I grew up in a small town located in the Ozark Hills, where my family owned and operated a small hardware store. The people of our community worked hard year-round just to make ends meet and rarely could afford to take time off from work. Sole proprietors never closed, except for funerals, and the very few businesses that employed those other than family seldom provided any paid time-off. In fact, my family’s only real experience with the term “vacation” was our regular attendance at “Vacation Bible School” offered by the First Baptist Church during the summer, where the oasis highlight of the morning was home-made cookies and red Kool-Aid served in a barrel glass.
