Golden Girl

                            for Danielle

The glow of your heart

warms all you embrace;

The warmth of your smile

melts anger and fear;

In you is the truth

of a beautiful soul;

You are pure gold.

Your life brings light

into darkness.

You are pure gold;

all of you.

Don’t be afraid

of your brilliance.

Guard it, but


Let it shine.

    I am home now from Nicaragua.  I went for 10 days with 17 members of my family.  The town where I went is very poor, there are no cars in the village, only horses, but the horses are much smaller than the ones you know.  My niece, Moxie, who lives in Wyoming, was with us.  She loves to ride horses.  She is 14 years old.  I have been to this village 20 times, and I wanted to go back one more time to say good-bye, but when it came time to say good-bye, I could only cry.  Moxie's family have about 10 horses because in the summer they have 500 head of cattle that they have to move everyday.  They try to immitate the way the buffalo used to graze, not eating all the grass, but moving slowly all day long, leaving plenty of grass and fertalizer so the grass grows right back.  I hope you get a horse to ride when spring comes.

      Hi Mr. Hendricks,

      Thank you for sharing with me about your trip! I still have to mail the letter to you. I'm going to draw some more pictures for you and I hope you like them. 

      See you soon,

        I will look forward to the letter and the pictures.  When I get pictures of our trip I will tell your grandmother how to see them on line so you can see them too
