Laura Jo…she is our little “golden child”. She is almost unbearably sweet. Green eyes always twinkling, a ready smile, quick to laugh out loud. Her fuzzy blonde hair glistens in the sun.
I look out once this spring-- she is silhouetted under the apple tree in early morning sunshine, bent down, ready to pick a dandelion, her hair a golden halo.
I try to mentally ‘imprint’ the picture in my memory so I won’t forget.
