My heart strings long for the memory of this day, on my tricycle with my sister, Oriana watching over me.
Most all of my family photos, show me really laughing, and since I appear a bit stern here, I must have been thinking, Mommy please don't interrupt Oriana's reading to me.
Thankfully, I have these treasured photos showing how she read to me and
How she played dolls with me. I still have that feeling how special moments with my sister, and our family dog, were very important to me.
I do remember this vacation, at a friend's cabin in the woods on a lake. I remember being the first to get up very early, and feeding the ducks all of our bread before breakfast! Here I'm surely smiling at some funny thing my daddy just said.
Thank you Carmi, for this little step back (okay way back) hehehe into memory lane for me. Those were the days, that were the shaping of the woman I have become today.
