Rich and Debbie have six of the most beautiful children. They arrived to my house on a perfect afternoon, last week. I thoroughly enjoyed a peak into their lives. The giggles, the sweet little voices.
One of their daughters was instantly my best friend. She was so warm and affectionate just moments after meeting me. One girl is desperately fond of horses, something I understand so well. She wanted to play horses in the open field. One girl loved to pick flowers. The youngest girl wasn’t far behind as they explored and raced through the field. These little ladies love their brother. They each wanted to hold him for pictures. The kids might have played for hours. They played horses. We went on wagon rides. They played ring around the rosy. They laughed.
At one point, the mom and dad stole a quick kiss. One daughter exclaimed, “Oh, so romantic.” They make eleven years of marriage look beautiful.
