                                   Casey did not hesitate. “Absolutely! Tell me where to turn. But let me stop for a moment and let Jason and Chloie know we’re going to make a stop on the way, okay?”
The young woman made her call and then followed the older woman’s direc- tions, turning into a gravel driveway that led past some pines to a small barn, just big enough for a few animals and hay. Off to the right was a traditional farm- house with a wrap-around porch, where, for the holidays, a wreath hung on the front door.
“Oh!” Lydia gasped. “Just look at it!
They have put on a new roof!” Tears filled her eyes. “But we mustn’t stay. I don’t want to disturb anyone!”
“It’s okay,” Casey said, as she shut off the car’s engine. “They won’t mind.” Her face broke into a broad grin as Jason and a young girl of about ten, stepped out of the barn, waving happily.
Lydia turned to Casey, trying to process all that was rushing through
her mind as the young woman reached into her coat pocket and pulled out a photograph, placing it in Lydia’s trembling hands. In the photograph, a woman of about sixty was standing beside a striking
black horse with a white blaze face. Her long brown hair was pulled back in a clip, she wore blue jeans, riding boots, and a bright wool shirt in red, black, and blue. And around her neck was a black and white bandana.
A tear spilled from Lydia’s face, onto the photo. “Where...?”
“We found it in an old desk that was here when we bought the place,” Casey smiled as she turned the photo over to reveal the inscription, “Liddy and Blaze, October 22, 1998.”
“Merry Christmas, Liddy. Welcome home.”
