There are times in life when you feel as though you are living in the present. You are content and feel blessed with all that life entails. And though you have people in your life that have passed on, you are at peace in a way… and are genuinely happy.
Then you have a day filled with memories, old friends (family, really), and lots of hugs and updates on your life. And it almost feels like you’re right back in it, wishing that you could go back in time.
After going to a wedding reception for a person who is basically a member of our family, and seeing people who not only knew my father – but loved him just as deeply as we did, it was as if for just a moment – he was here again. There is a deep, unmistakable love in my heart for every one of those people in Mustang, Oklahoma. If only we could turn back the hands of time for just a day so that we all could be together again. Oh, the day of our reunion will be sweet, indeed.
So very sweet.
