Five Minute Friday: Cherished
It’s small. The ribbon is tattered on the end. It doesn’t have a bevy of notes and maps and references.
It’s solid. The leather is worn but strong. Inside the markings she made are done in the ballpoint pens she always had in her purse. Trusty. Reliable.
Some of the passages have a small note, like
Les Blank 1/20/85.
The words had particular meaning to her. Some words were even given extra ink beneath, such as promise and power.
Some of the words are just underlined. There are no notations. There is no reference. Except that it was important to her. And now it is important to me. I cherish what she cherished. Our inheritance is the same. Our family tree has the same deep roots.
One day we will be together again, in Paradise and I will ask her why she put pen to paper as she did. But until that day I will cherish the words she highlighted for me to read in her little brown bible.
