Open Wide!

Had an emergency appointment at the dentist’s yesterday.  Fortunately nothing much, just a lumpy filling needing a file.  Sadly the dentist’s 87-year-old mum had just passed away after a long battle with kidney failure.  We commiserated over our loses and then he told me this sweet story.  After his mother passed on monday night, he and his wife decided not to tell their young son. He was due to act in the school play and they didn’t want to upset him.  But somehow he found out anyway.  To their amazement he wasn’t distressed. Quite the opposite.  ‘Great,’ he said.  ‘Now grandma can watch me in my play.’ Evidently this child knew intuitively what I have only just discovered, that our spirit family are with us everyday.
