What Was Hidden In The Grass Clippings

Did you ever think about your pet peeves?
Those little things that annoy you, whether legitimate or not.
Those things that just seem to bother you.
Those pet peeves are different for each person.

I do not like dishes left in the sink.
If a person can bring their dishes from the table to the counter, they can do the next thing.
It is simply one more step to bend down and put the dishes in the dishwasher.
My children knew that was expected of them as they cleared the table.

A Question Overheard

Posted in Heaven | 2 Comments

If someone eavesdrops on your conversation, you would be a bit annoyed.
Some things are meant only for the ears of the person in front of you.
Sometimes, eavesdropping cannot be helped.
Sitting on a bus or a train, it is inevitable that you will hear other conversations.

You hear someone’s conversation, albeit unwillingly, if they are talking loudly on their phone.
We have all had the experience of needing something right where the person is standing.
This has happened more times than I can count when I am in the grocery store.
The person looks annoyed when you kindly ask them to move.

While We Wait

Perhaps it is predictability.
Perhaps it is simply being on the same schedule.
There are certain things I can count on each morning.
There are certain people I expect to see.

Even though I am walking and they are driving, we see each other.
It is getting to the point that we can count on seeing each other.
I can guess what time it is by the people that drive by me.
We are part of each other’s morning routines.

The Birdbath

Posted in Heaven | 2 Comments

I found myself thinking about my mother the other day.
It was a bird that brought back the memories.
It was a bird that was happily taking a bath in a small amount of water.
A small mount of water is all the tiny bird seemed to need.

I remember how much my mother wanted a birdbath in our back yard.
It was the days of hanging laundry on clotheslines.
It was the days of long poles that lifted the clothesline high in the air.
It was the days of clothespin bags that moved along the clothesline with you.

Superficial Judgment

Posted in Heaven | Leave a comment

I was never a cheerleader.
I was never a dancer, though I took ballet lessons as a little girl.
I was never an athlete.
However, I loved music, and singing, and participating in school plays.

On a whim, early in my high school years, I tried out for something.
A few friends and I decided to try out together.
It was not a dance troupe.
It was not a cheerleader squad.
