One June Evening...

* * * *


There's just something about nighttime.


Something about the way the warm night air wraps itself around me & the stars that seem to bow down out of the heavens, so close it seems I can almost touch them.


Sometimes, I think it almost seems as if I could shout out, "God?" And surely, if I only listened hard enough, I could hear His voice come echoing back to me.


* * * *


Elizabeth & her small, blonde-haired friend sit together, cross-legged, engrossed in a game of cards. Their voices drift lazily across the concrete of our small front porch, winding across the front lawn to my listening ears.


The sound of their laughter, the look of happiness on Elizabeth's face...means everything to me. She deserves to just act like a normal, happy little girl for awhile. Before we know it, she'll be all grown up...


* * * *



Yes, there's just something...

Emily, you're an exquisite writer. For a moment I was transported to that enchanted June world you wrote of....

Thank you so much, Clare. I've had so much trouble writing this past year, well, for the obvious reasons...

...anymore, nothing sounds right to me. I appreciate you more than you know.

Love,
Emily
