The phone rang. It was a salesman from a mortgage refinance company. "Do you have a second mortgage on your home?"
"No," I replied.
"Would you like to consolidate all your debts?"
"I really don't have any," I said.
"How about freeing up cash for home improvements?" he tried.
"I don't need any. I just recently had some done and paid cash," I parried.
There was a brief silence, and then he asked, "Are you looking for a husband?"
We all need time to grieve--
quiet time for reflection
to sift through memories
and come to grips
with what has happened.
We all need a time for tears
not for the one who is now
at peace in heaven,
but for ourselves as we realize
that things will never be the same.
We all need time to just "be",
when we can open ourselves to God
and let the reassurance
of His everlasting love,
start to heal our broken hearts.

"Oh, I reckon the first thing I'll do is go and pay a few bills."
"And what about the rest?" the reporter continued.
The farmer shrugs. "Well, I guess they'll just have to wait."
