Here’s Sue’s latest…Presence
Daisy knew she and I were like night and day. City girl loved her amenities and a country boy like me liked things simple. I bought this land in the middle of Missouri.
She hated it. The nearest store was ten miles away and she cried every night for the first year of our marriage. Then we started having kids. Two boys and a girl. Oh how she’d light up when they ran giggling through the meadow.
Daisy fell ill on her 50th birthday… Since she’s been gone, I’ve marked her absence with large stones. I’d like to believe she’s still there in the meadow waiting beneath a stone all my own.
