Rainy day May.....Saturday Review!
This morning.....(while waiting on my oil change at Monro)
I found myself on an adventure back to the "Farm"...
I had breakfast at Bob Evans, an original Ohio born staple that started in 1962 in Southeast Ohio.
I walked in... it was a journey down memory lane of when my parents would take all 13 of us to breakfast on the weekends, funny...I find myself eating alone reflecting on this....but I as i sat there embracing my surroundings I couldn't help but hear all of the conversations that took place around me! There was one however that stood out the most, it was a round table of "Grandpa's"... they have been coming to this Hamilton Road location for years..the server new everyone's name by heart and what every person wanted already...she greeted the table by name and the signature "coffee" she had such joy about serving others! While sitting near this table I could not help but listen in on the "seasoned" conversation beside me.
It was a conversation about "LIFE", how everyone's week was, how their wife's were doing and the countless grandchildren's life adventures, even a few graduating this month!
I can only hope that when I am at that age beyond my years I have developed such relationships with others around me that I to can find myself at a round breakfast table of memory's of such to cherish and enjoy a hot breakfast from Bob Evans!
My breakfast was amazing! I enjoyed a hot cup of coffee, fresh squeezed orange juice (well...at least it looks like it...lol) I enjoyed the amazing "Sunshine Skillet" with fresh buttermilk pancakes, warm local maple syrup and crispy bacon. I am learning that.. It's okay to enjoy a good hot home cooked breakfast that feeds your soul every now and then!
Thank You...Bob Evans for such a wonderful reminder to stop and enjoy the "FARM".
