Sun-Kisses



freckles:
they make me think of innocent childhood days bathed in sunshine and backyard adventures.
they bring to mind bare little arms and legs running through sprinklers in the heat of the summer.
they scatter softly across button noses and rosy cheeks, begging to be kissed and caressed.
they multiply daily as she plays outside, her imgaination aglow with the endless possiblities found in her small yet spacious world.
look closely, they are there, on the sweet face of this daughter of mine who is growing and changing each day.

they make me smile.

Now that last one is too sweet. How are the girls enjoying their new backyard? i'm guessing a lot since she's getting her freckles from being outside. I love how you write. This was really really sweet

I remember when my own freckles popped out about the same time the dandelions did every spring!

Once I was so distressed by the freckles, wanting, instead, to have creamy white skin like the Perelli twins in my class. So my Grandma suggested that I wash my face with buttermilk before bed. I did so religiously, but to no avail. The freckles remained! It's a good thing, too, because that was one of the first things that Clay noticed and liked about me! :)
