Memories On A Porch

My morning ritual is the same throughout the summer.
Each day my plants must be watered.
I water the plants on the deck outside my kitchen and the plants out front in the old rusty gates.
Watering the plants on the side porch made me pause.

It is a sneak attack.
The memories that come on so strong you have to pay attention.
The memories that catch you off guard in a good way.
The memories that scream to be remembered.

I went to my favorite Whole Foods market to buy the organic honey I enjoy.
I put a few other things in my basket and walked up to the cash register.
As I approached the counter, I was surprised to see a little girl.
She was sitting up on the counter hugging a very worn stuffed animal.

I held my basket since there was no place to put it down.
Her daddy was finishing his purchase.
She was watching everyone, still hugging her special stuffed friend.
I noticed her hair; it was so blond, it was almost white.

I rang the doorbell with a tray in hand.
I made a meal for someone and was bringing it to their house around dinner time.

The meal was to bless them.
However, the visit ending up blessing me.
Isn’t that always the way it goes?
Reciprocal blessings.

Our youngest daughters are the same age.
They were in youth group together.
We go to the same church.

However, there was a moment.
There was that occasion when our friendship began.
Neither one of us was certain.
Not until I gave her a hug.

The Fisherman

A state park is close to my home.
There are hiking trails and a beautiful man-made lake.
In order to drive most places, I must drive over that pristine lake.
It is the place where people will stop to take pictures since the sunsets over the lake are amazing.

The bridge that goes over the lake is quite wide along each shoulder.
That is where cars will pull over to take photographs.
That is where the park rangers will often come to inspect.
That is where a life preserver is always hung.
