Time Out

We recently found out that my 96 year old grandmother is not doing well, her health, after years of amazing good fortune, beginning to slow her down. Knowing this will be a confusing time for the girls, I think it best to talk about some of these things before we are actually confronted with them. At dinner tonight we talked about what happens when someone dies.

Mary: Well, it's alright because you can send them a letter.
Kate: No, not really, there are no letters in God's world.
Me: Actually...
Kate: Really Mary, it's simply a time out for old people.

Well then, nothing to worry about, moving on.
