Postcards from Paradise: Dedication

 a dedication
to the mem'ry of my mom
from my hubs and me

After Mass a few weeks ago,
my former partner teacher
told me that she has been
repairing our song books
by taping the covers to the insides
of the well-worn books.
She had run across a book
with my dedication in it.
(on the chapel side where I
normally sit.)  
In the ten years or more
that I've sat there,
I had not run across
this particular hymnal,
and consequently,
I'd forgotten about it.
 (Our parish members had
helped with the big outlay
of money for the new books
by sponsoring a dedication slip.)
So I opened and closed books
for the hope 
that I'd spot it.  
Not successful that week. 
But, of course, since I posted
it, you can see I was finally
fruitful in my seeking.
I chose this photo with the hope
that this ''postcard' 
might be from Paradise!

Isn't it amazing? A present from Heaven when we least expect it and need it most.
