For Laura


Our married daughter lives in Vermont, and has been lamenting the long lingering of an extra-snowy winter. You can see some photos she has taken of the way things are there now at her blog. So, Laura, this photo of the neighbor’s rhododendron bush is for you. This bush has been in bloom for about a month now, and is so lovely. It was almost evening yesterday when Kayla took this picture.

And here’s another picture for Laura, taken when our youngest child, Seth, was about the age that her son Diederick is now:


Seth chose Laura as his favorite. She could quiet and comfort him even when Mommy couldn’t. 🙂 (Seth is holding one of Lassie’s puppies.)

    Laura: Probably Darren is talking about you AND the puppy! 🙂

    Marmee: You’re welcome. I’m sorry the girls weren’t well enough to come to church this evening. I mean it though; I appreciate you!

    I LOVE the pictures you put up of your children when they were younger. Some of them remind me of your first visit to Edmonton… how many years ago was that now?? Too long ago… my, how time flies.

    I wish I could stop by more often and visit your blog. But it’s all your fault, you know. You were the one who invited me to join Blog365… and it appears I have time for posting OR reading blogs, and not both! LOL

    Willena, I feel so remiss, because I haven’t been reading your blog lately. For some reason, I can’t add it to my Google Reader, so I forget to check on it.

    I’m so glad you’re busy writing! I’m too busy to stop by today to catch up, but I will very soon!
