Last night I awoke around 3.30am, don’t know what woke me up, but couldn’t seem to get back to sleep. As I lay there I began thinking about our two girls as little children, strange eh!! I remembered Caroline at 8 years of age running through the Dominion Store to tell us they had Lion chops at the meat counter. While in Ontario with Susannah we visited Shirley, Linda’s sister who lived in a small flat in Beamsville. I had planned to stay in a local motel but Shirley said we could stay with her. Susannah could sleep with Shirley and I could use the couch. At bedtime Shirley gave me a pillow and bedding and said “I hope you’ll be okay on the couch” Susannah piped up “its okay Aunt Shirley, Dad can sleep with you I’ll sleep on the couch”. Poor Susannah, she didn’t understand why we both laughed!!. More recently, I was explaining to my 7 year old grandson that our old cat had died. He wanted to know what happened to her. I explained that she had gone to Kitty heaven, but what about her body he asked, why had she left it behind. I explained that it was only her spirit that went to heaven. There was a moment of silence, then “Oh! I understand, she’s a ghost now, right.
Out of the mouths of babes. I must have fallen asleep.
Cheers and keep reading.
