The Story

There was nothing better than listening to the children playing down by the stream. John had found a great place for them to settle down. The home wasn’t much, but it was all they needed. John even built a wonderful little fish pond that she could see from her kitchen window.

The Spring brought beauty to the desert. The cactus were blooming and even the weeds seemed to be sprouting tiny yellow flowers. Everything seemed perfect.

Everything, that is, except the dark thoughts in her mind that even the sun couldn’t clear away.

The History

This is an average back yard in an average abandoned house. And yet, I can hear all the whispers of the family gatherings and children playing while mom watches out the kitchen window.
