Two years ago, I bought Esther a rocking chair from a garage sale. It looked just like the one I had when I was a little girl. It has sat in the garage, unfinished until last weekend when Jed finished sanding, painting and tightening the lovely gift to her.
I starting carrying it to the house while Esther played outside and I raked, and she insisted on trying the rocking out while I finished raking the leaves. Always the princess.
I am glad it is safe inside now where it should be...with her and us.
