Overheard Conversation

Heaven is just behind him. Do you see it?

(On a car trip to a friend's house for a play date as told to me by B's dad.)

B: I have two houses now. My mamma and papa aren't living together anymore.

Ezra: I have two homes too.

Ezra: I have one in heaven.


  1. Hi, My name is Katie..I don't usually reach out to people like this but, I feel like I know you. You see I lost my mother to breast cancer and my father as well to bone cancer. I was 11 when my mom passed away and 17 when my father went. You are brave. I have never looked up to someone in my entire life, and I don't even know you. But I just wish I can one day be as strong as you.

  2. Oh Kate, you made me sigh with both sadness and joy. I am so glad you took the time to reach out. You are soooo brave too! And you inspire me to remember that my kids will be OK. There! So now I gave you a gift and you have given me one too!
