"A daughter is...a joy bringer, a heart warmer, a memory maker. A daughter is love."

All I asked was to show me how to READ blogs by OTHER people...and now look what happened! One of my three joy bringers, heart warmers and memory makers SET ME UP with a blog space! And she didn't even tell the truth...I am not beautiful (I've been called "approachable" because of my brownish-red and white hair, freckles and crooked teeth.) and I am not a writer. I am a reader. I love to read. As you can tell from my daughter's grandiose description of our farm and hospitality, SHE is the CREATIVE writer!

But we do have fun living, working and sharing our farm life with our family and friends. Along with joy, our daughters come with BEAUTIFuL grandchildren, faithful pets, inspiring gifts of flowers, jewelry, and even kitchen curtains! They arrive with delicious desserts, the coffee I forgot while buying groceries, and enough energy to light an entire city! Our daughter-in-love (law) can read me like a book and knows when to distract the grandchildren so that I can concentrate on dinner preparations and then after everyone goes home, she straightens up my computer desk-top AND my kitchen counter-tops and lets me play with grandbabies!!!

As far as memory-making goes, these three daughters know that their mother is scatterbrained. So they have organized my scrapbooking, computer, cabinets and closets...or maybe I should say they have tried. Most of all, they have taught me that some memories are for keeping, others need to be discarded like worn-out clothes and special memories should be shared...especially with daughters!! Thank you, girls!
