At the farm
This showed up on my daughter's Facebook page today. One of her friends posted this photo from five years ago, taken during Farm Camp in the summer before my daughter entered seventh grade. No doubt you can guess which one is my girl. The group was about to set off on a three-day camping trip, and they paused for the traditional picture in front of the farm house where so many of the best memories of their childhood were made. My daughter is 12 years old in this picture, and next to her are two of her very best friends in the whole world. I can't resist these pictures from back in the day. They provoke such memories. My girl looks happy, doesn't she? She was always happy at the farm. In truth, her disposition bends toward the sunny end of the spectrum, which for a mother like me is the very definition of a blessing.
