Farmhouse Window

There she sits, the only daughter in a house full of blessings, talking through the window to her bossom friend. Like some farmhouse-style Anne & Dianna. Bedtime on Summer nights can be so unfair. Just a quick sneak to the window. "But mom, I HAVE to tell her one more thing!" she pleads (and yes, that is a branch holding up our old conversation window). I sigh and remember how I used to wish that I had a friend next door, just a hop, skip and jump away...

Lest I forget to put on the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness, God put my girl at the conversation window. Thank you Father for answering my childhood prayer with an answer of "wait" ...saving this blessing for my daughter.


  1. What a great post, how wonderful!

    I miss my old house, you had to put a stick in the window to keep them we live in a new house and the window open side to side...not as much charm.


  2. How wonderful!!!!! I love all things Anne with an "E" ish. What a blessing to have a bosom friend right next door. Thanks for sharing this blissful moment with us. I just love how you capture memories with your camera!!!!!
    Blessings to you, Gerri
