Contentment


The placid days grow longer

Warm breezes lift cotton skirts as little girls dance in the grass

The lazy hum of summer starts to sink in

Days melt together

The poppies along the stone walk, with petals like tangerine crepe paper, their drooping heads give off a carefree air

Everything in the world seems right.

Michelle! Beautiful. And, you are turning in your mission papers?! How exciting! Definitely keep me updated on that. I will totally write you (although I will not promise how frequently, I've never been too good at that :)) Hope you're doing great! Love you!
