time hurts

I wish I could bottle up that smell, that beautiful combination of tilled earth and fruit blossoms, of prairie winds and fresh dew. It’s the smell of walking to the irrigation field at sunrise and of jeans wet to the hip from trudging through tall hayfields. It’s the smell of crisp blue skies held up by white mountain pillars on every corner. It’s the smell of home, a smell that transports me back to a strange amnesic state in which the last several years are erased—in which I fully expect to open the front door and find all four of my siblings still at home, Amy still a toddler, and Lenny still alive.

Time hurts today.

  1. You are just beginning to make new memories. Memories that are still so vivid in your mind and some that make you want to turn the clock back. I remember those early months of marriage...a new place, a new job, a new church. New can be exciting and fun or it can just be plain lonely and sometimes even sad. Soon new experiences will take up that empty place in your heart and help you move forward. We love you Hallie Jo! You are in my thoughts and prayers today. <3 Dottie
