How Far Away Is Heaven

A special treat for my granddaughters and I is the time we spend watching the stars. At one time I had a hot tub; we would toss the sleeping bag on top, bring out the pillows and settle in for quality star time.

Last night the girls begged to sit beneath the stars. The evening was cool. We sat in lawn chairs bundled in blankets and cuddling pillows. Airplanes crossed the sky. "Grammy, the stars really twinkle." We break into "Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star".

"Grammy, do you think wishes on stars do come true?" "I don't know," I answer. So we recite "Star bright, star light" each making her own wish.

We talk of infinity, discuss God. "Grammy, do you believe that dead people come back?" Well, the questions are getting deeper as does the evening. I don't have all of the answers, but that's okay. We are looking for answers together, discovering ourselves and sharing a very special time. Just me and my girls.

We watched those distant stars we each wonder,"Is anyone looking back?"

Twinkle, twinkle......
