This Christmas I framed this photo as a gift for my sisters.
It was taken of my two sisters and myself when we were three, four, and five years old. I am on the left, the oldest, my baby sister Jane is in the center, and my sister Joan is on the right. We were so close in age we were practically triplets! Surprisingly I remember the day this photo was taken. It was an autumn afternoon in South Carolina. Just five months earlier our family had returned from Cuba where our parents had been missionaries.........forced home by Castro's revolutionary activities there. This little white house was a rental that we lived in until the following spring when we moved to Laurens, a small nearby town where my Dad took over the pastorate of a church . I have so many good memories of the times spent in this little house.....memories of playing on this front porch.......after all when you're three, four, and five there's so much to do and so many things to play.
I love you Joan. I love you Jane. I've always been glad there were the three of us.
* I simply wrote the quote onto the picture using Photoshop Elements. However, for those who don't have Photoshop there is a free download at Piknik where you can edit your photos.....I've never used it myself but I hear that it is excellent.
