Easily made, hard kept.
Awoke this morning thinking about marriage. Ours. Today would’ve been our 54th. We made it to 51 plus. Couldn’t hurdle over “in sickness and in health” or “til death do us part.”
Wonder what Jud’s doing today?
After dropping off the Grands at school, I stopped back at their house to walk Cozy, their puppy. The song,”What I did for Love” came to mind. Afterwards, I went to the BMW center to honor Jud by “working out.” I use the term loosely since most of me already is.
Back home, I made lunch, then took it into the Snuggery to watch a PBS concert with Josh Groban, soon tearing up with women throughout the audience. Who could remain dry-eyed at hearing Bring Him Home from Les Mis and Phantom’s All I Ask of You.
Lunch with a good cry.
A truly Good cry came when I finished reading The Last Battle, for our book group. We’ve been reading The Chronicles of Narnia by C. S. Lewis. Good to’ve grown young enough for what some call fairytales.
The final chapter bids us go” further up and further in.” I took comfort burying my face in Aslan’s mane, curling up safe as Cozy earlier today. Then came the Good tears, imagining Jud and others who’ve made it Home ahead of me, living like never before. Does it not feed hope, fuel imagination reading the last sentence of this book?
“Now at last they were beginning Chapter One of the Great Story which no one on earth has read: which goes on for ever: in which every chapter is better than the one before.”
Only God could take”for better or for worse” and make the Best of it.
