Written Words

  “Being able to return to work”

Written last year on this date, October 26th, these are the final written words of Les that I have in my possession.  They are part of a “thankfulness journal” he and I kept daily.  We wrote our short thought side by side each day.  Because of his health, his had been sporadic for some time, but each one is a treasure to me.  My thankful thought for that same day was for having some “normalcy” in our life.  Things actually seemed better for us.  Les seemed some stronger.  We had recently been to the movies, had just gone to church on Sunday, and we were spending a lot of time on the back porch, just being together.

  I had no idea we were so near the end.

That, too, was a gift.  God gave us some special days together; days filled with hope.  Days Les was able to drive to Pink Hill and work at his desk for a few hours.  Days that seemed “normal.”   Was I living in a make-believe world?  Sometimes I ask myself that, but as I’ve told so many people, you have to live as if you are going to live, not as if you’re dying.

 

                                                                                                          That’s not unrealistic.

                                                                                                              It’s just grace.

Lots of love, Sharon

  1. Those words are so true Sharon. Each of us should live each day to the fullest because we never know when we are going to live with Jesus, just as Les did. Who knows, it could be today!

    Have a blessed weekend!

    Love,
