She’s baaaaaaack!

June 30, 2013

J is with us for three weeks.   I didn’t think this visit would ever happen and it is an answer to prayer.  We are having a wonderful time.  We’ve been to Hope to see old friends, swimming at Lake Nokomis, and of course continuing our lucrative lemonade business. I am quite happy to turn over the supervision of the lemonade stand to the young business woman.

Here are a few snippets from the week:

Day One (at dinner)

Charlie: Mom, can someone with white skin marry someone with brown skin?

Me: Of course, why do you ask.

Charlie (whipping his head around to stare at J with a huge smile on his face): Oh, I don’t know, just asking.

Day Two (at bedtime)

J: “So, Miss P, did you remember me.”

Miss P: “Hmmm, let’s see, are you J?”

J: “Yes, I am.”

Miss P: “Then yes I do remember you!”

On Day Three (backyard picnic)

Elizabeth: “Why J, this lemonade is delicious, what did you put in it?”

J: “Love.”

Elizabeth: “How do you put in love?”

J: “When your heart is happy while you were making something, you can taste the love!”

    I can’t believe J said that. She is an old and lovely soul.
