Tonight we went to a little dinner party for a friend of my mom. It included the group of music teachers that my mom has known for years, though the number has been gradually dwindling. They still get together to celebrate one another’s birthday. The guest of honor will be turning 87 years old. Her husband died about 2 years ago and since then she has sold her house and most of her belongings and is now in an assisted living facility. She and her son have never been very close, but now he is making a weekly trip from his house in the mountains to the facility to spend time with her and help take care of her needs. Tonight she told us that her son was going to take her up to his place to spend some time there. She was so happy – almost giddy as she talked about it. She has never even seen his home. It is hard to imagine having that kind of relationship with a child or parent. But I am so happy to see that relationship change and see how much joy it is bringing to the woman.
I Found God today in a relationship changed for the positive.
