“Be careful” her aging husband spoke softly to her
“I don’t want to loose you” he said.
She felt a swelling in her chest just hearing the appreciation for her in his voice. Her mind rolled back to years before her body felt like a tattered sheet of paper. Fragile and discolored from time; and like that sheet of paper her life had been touched by many. She had given much of who she was away. Though tattered and weathered there was still room for script to be written. She opened her mouth and told her husband how much she loved him. She smiled and the wrinkles seemed to increase around her eye, and mouth.
“Ah there it is!” she said aloud. “My friend the eagle”
she had spent most of her life trying to emulate the majestic bird. She tried to live spiritually high in the cliffs. She had tried to find the wind of God and ride on the current rather than to exhaust herself flapping her wings. She had learned to stir her nest when children had needed that nudge.
“Thank you Albert, for this trip of a lifetime, you promised me, it only took 42 years
but you made it good”
“I love you”
