Lee texted me the other day,

“Thank you for visiting me”

He didn’t send anything else and it wasn’t a part of any conversation.

I texted him back,


Later, when we talked on the phone, he said, “I heard something on the radio that made me think back to all the “stuff”. I just wanted to let you know that it meant a lot to me that you visited me all the time.”

It’s odd how things come up that remind us of this. Sometimes we’re in a blissful fog “forgetting” but things always happen that remind us.

Right now, when things remind me, I’m trying to stop and specifically thank God for the difference in our lives now. In many ways I just want to forget and never think of it again, but in other ways, I know it’s important to NOT forget.

God blessed us so much, taught us so much, carried us so far….it wouldn’t be right to forget. I’m also praying that I won’t forget because I don’t want to be the person who minimizes or turns a blind eye to the hurts of others. Remembering keeps my heart soft and my eyes open to people who need to feel the love of God in their lives.

However, when I get a random text that seemingly has nothing to do with anything, I am liable to text back, “HUH!?”

    What a neat way to respond, to stop and thank God for the difference in life now. I’m sure there will be things to glean from that time in your lives for years to come.
