The Mailbox by janetb

The Mailbox

The whole family laughs at the memory now, but there was nothing funny about it at the time. Happy and carefree, sweet young Sarah skipped down toward the mailbox on a beautiful, hot summer afternoon; and there, her tender little bare feet met a patch of stickers. YEOW!! After lots of tears and hugs and kisses and comforting words, she recovered just fine; and when Mike and I spotted this patch on a walk the other day, we laughed out loud as I quickly leaned in to focus on that sharp point. Our innocent little girl's now 33, and I'll bet she's going to laugh out loud when she sees this. ♥

I praise you, Lord, for funny family memories.
Now that does look as though it would have been a painful experience for anyone. It would certainly be a memory that sticks firmly in her mind.

And I'll bet she remembers it, too. They appear so unexpectedly. Like the softness to the tones yet the clear sharpness of those thorns.

These are NOT friendly plants.

… or maybe not! Nice focus.
