As I was walking through the lobby of the hotel I was staying yesterday this scene grabbed my attention.
What do you see in this scene?
Of course there are two “empty” chairs along with a table and on it a plant arrangement. Then there’s the carpet with different pattern formed compared to the lines across the table and chairs.
But what do you see?
I see two chairs where one could be where my mother is sitting and me next to her in a conversation enjoying the afternoon light. But I lost her a couple weeks ago. I was there when she left us.
I’m glad I moved back home a few months ago. I lived away from home for almost 40 years. My wonderful wife helped talked me into moving back. Not necessarily a permanent move but a chance to be near family for a while. I’m grateful I listened to my best friend and spouse. We have so much to do yet in this life so no more wasting any more time.
