This is the first in a series of candles we are calling Homespun Memories. Each candle evokes a cherished memory in our lives.
It was a bitterly cold day in November of 2013 - the day after Thanksgiving. We had hired a team of young men from an Amish community to add a lean-to to the building which replaced a barn lost to fire in 2008. The young men ranged from ages 19-25. Each day they shared our table at dinner and we enjoyed getting to know them.
This particular day the temperature was near zero. Our three young granddaughters had spent the night and were chatting in the living room. All of a sudden, Grandpa announced that the buggy was approaching. On a whim I grabbed my phone to snap a picture. I am not a photographer but I was thrilled with the picture I captured of our three granddaughters peering out the window to see the horse and buggy come up our driveway. These young men had traveled 2 1/2 hours with no shield on their buggy, but they showed up with smiles and a wonderful work ethic. When they finished our building, it was like saying goodbye to family.
