Marshmallows and Moonlight
By Beth Beutler
1 With a shimmering lake in the background reflecting the rising moon, Susan sat in front of a crackling campfire. She sighed deeply, settling into the outdoor lounge chair she had gotten for her birthday.
2 Susan loved camping, especially when her family camped by a lake. There was something extremely relaxing about being outdoors, breathing fresh air, and not having a heavy schedule for the weekend. Adding a campfire to the mix made it just about perfect.
3 Susan's mom stepped out of their recreational vehicle with a bag of plump white marshmallows.
4 "Do you want to toast some marshmallows?" she asked Susan.
5 Susan looked up from her quiet spot. "Sure, that sounds good."
