Never pass up family opportunities...never.

Before I Go...

by Y. M. Roger


“Be brief.” He stood, waiting patiently.
 
First stop, Caitlyn’s room. I hated to miss her end-of-the-year school play. But I had finished her costume and sat through dress rehearsal this morning. I blew her a kiss.
 
Bobby’s door was shut. I walked into his inner sanctum. How many times had I come in here uninvited? But we had our best conversations then, like the one yesterday after his game. His tourney this weekend would be my first absence. I ‘air’ high-fived and turned away.
 
My husband was snoring, as always. I stood beside the bed and savored the face of the most understanding man on this Earth – so glad we had dinner at the airport earlier.
 
“Love you,” I whispered.
 
My prayer as the plane had plummeted to the ground had been that I be able to say good-bye.
 
I thanked the patient angel as we stepped into the light.
