Moment of Relief and a Smile

In some ways my life hasn't changed at all:

As I cleared the kitchen table this morning of last night's dishes, I removed the tablecloth, which is in desperate need of a trip to the wash.

To remove the tablecloth, I first had to remove the centerpiece, and as I put it back on the table I noticed it for the first time in, probably, days:

A Pier One glass platter,
a tall white candle
and three small sea blue and sand colored votive candles,
given to us by friends when we escaped to Key West at Christmas,
and one unpackaged and half-used roll of dental floss.

And the dental floss was, of course, the centerpiece of the centerpiece... :)

To be able to once again see the silliness in life is indeed, a good thing.

Thank you for your kind message on my blog. Your writing strikes a chord in me...and yes, we have several things in common. I am so sorry about your son's passing. I will return when I can to read more of your, and his, story.
Blessings to you...

Dental floss is a good thing.
