Leave the Light On
When I was a young mother, I often felt lost and afraid. Another mother whose children were a bit older befriended me. I loved going to her house. It was a big farmhouse with a wrap-around porch. They kept it cold so I always took a sweater and warm clothes for the kids, which became a joke after awhile. We had many a meal there and made sweet memories. I always felt welcome and safe.
Years passed and children grew up. Our lives turned in other directions, but I never forgot the kindness and love shown to me during those vulnerable years.
Today my friend, Peggy, went home to be with the Lord after a long battle with leukemia. Heaven is richer, then so am I for having known her.
