Exotic Places to Live

As she approached I remembered her daughter had lived in Asia.  Probably prompted by my daughter’s potential adventure.  I asked how her daughter was doing.  She brightened and answered, “Oh she’s doing great!  She’s married and lives in Seattle now.  Now my son lives in Amsterdam and I got to visit him.”

It wasn’t one-upmanship, really.  The thought strolled into my mind unbidden and unspoken.  Filling my heart with joy.  “My son lives in heaven and when I go to see him it will be to stay.”



Heavenly Moment

Early morning,

Barely awake,

Stunning realization,

Mental inventory;

Head, right foot,

Low back, left shoulder,

Hands, fingers, joints,

Nothing hurt.

I felt absolutely,

No pain.
