Summer is a happy and busy time in our neighborhood. This first week of freedom from school finds my young boys playing with the neighborhood children. All six of "the gang" roam the woods, look for frogs, fish in the pond, dig tunnels, and swim together in an endless, old fashioned, unscheduled romp. No TV, no video games, no whining. It is a blessing, for which I am very thankful. My prayer is that they always have time like this to roam, wonder, explore, and create. I hope they always hold the "Silver and Gold" of old friendships and new, dear in their hearts.
The flag is a simple piece of linen embellished with a circle of contrasting upholstery fabric and a doily. Small bits of embroidery are peeking out, adding a pale tint of purple and blue to the piece. The tag reads, "Make their life happy. They are young but once".
