How to Kill a Poignant Moment

reflections during a two-hour drive

"Don't you wish all of our children lived within 30 minutes of us? I guess this is the outcome of us moving around the country so much: our kids are comfortable with moving, living anywhere. It would be so nice if they all lived nearby and were dropping in all the time, coming for dinner, going places with us. Can you imagine what that would be like? Obviously, though, this is the way it was supposed to be, because God wove all those moves into the fabric of our lives."

"You sound like a cotton commercial."

"Why did you say that?"

"That's what their slogan is: 'Cotton is the fabric of our lives.'"

Not that I speak in respect of want: for I have learned, in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content. ~ Philippians 4:11
