A Special Daughter
Not carried in my womb, but carried in my heart. Mary came into a young woman's life when she was almost 4 years old and during the next 5 years and mom was around 27 years of age there were 3 more children added to our home. It was a difficult time. A young mother with a house full of children and many adjustments that caused a lot of turmoil. My dreams of the ideal marriage never became a reality. Mary was with me for about 15 years.
Mary is a beautiful young woman who lives in upper Michigan with her husband Dan and son William. William is studying engineering.
Mary shares many of my interests. Her love of home, cooking, and gardening. What she has that I do not is the opportunity to share the water. It is a love of mine that is not closely available. At present time she works at a doctors clinic part time.
My son-in-law Dan is multi-talented. Too many to almost share. But do not think there is anything that he can not build. He has designed a number of beautiful log homes and I have several magnificient pen and ink sketches of several of my homes that he did for me. I marvel at the detail in these pictures.
So I am sharing a picture received in the mail this early morning.
Wish I were there.
