...A Keeper...

Their marriage was good, their dreams focused. Their best friends
lived barely a wave away. I can see them now, Dad in trousers, work
shirt and a hat; and Mom in a house dress, lawn mower in one hand,
and dish-towel in the other.  It was the time for fixing things: a curtain
rod, the kitchen radio, screen door, the oven door, the hem in a dress.
Things we keep.

It was a way of life, and sometimes it made me crazy.  All that
re-fixing, re-heating leftovers, renewing; I wanted just once to be
wasteful.  Waste meant affluence. Throwing things away meant you
knew there'd always be more.

But when my mother died, and I was standing in that clear morning
light in the warmth of the hospital room, I was struck with the pain of
learning that sometimes there isn't any more.

Sometimes, what we care about most gets all used up and goes
away.... never to return. So... While we have it, it's best we love it...
And care for it... And fix it when it's broken... And heal it when it's

This is true: For marriage... And old cars... And children with bad
report cards... Dogs and cats with bad hips... And aging parents...
And grandparents. We keep them because they are worth it, because
we are worth it. Some things we keep, like a best friend that moved
away or a classmate we grew up with.
There are just some things that make life important, like people we
know who are special... And so, we keep them close!

I received this from my wonderful Friend Colleen R. who thinks I am
a 'keeper,'. Now it's your turn to send this to those people that are
'keepers' in your life.  

Good friends are like stars... You don't always see them, but you
know they are always there!
