Coffee Hour @ Chicklit Power -“Is today almost tomorrow?”

Welcome to Coffee Hour @ Chicklit Power and thank you for coming by today. I heard something from a very special five-year-old the other day that I thought would be fun to share with you. It was rather profound and sent my mind to thinking, so grab whatever you’re having and come on in…

So as I shared, I had to have a colonoscopy last Friday, and it’s not because of my age, either! OMG, I’m so glad it’s over and you’ll never guess what happened before it was over. Do you give up? I woke up! Yikes. I moaned and groaned and they knocked me out some more. I can actually laugh about it now. Anyway, one of my very closest friends and book team member said she would take me to the surgery center, and my husband would meet us there. So we’re driving, or rather she’s driving and her little boy, Josh, is in the back seat. I was a bit cranky and my stomach was making growling noises almost as loud as his laughter. He’s a very engaging and boisterous little guy with the gift of laughter and entertainment, to name just a couple of his gifts, and within minutes, I was feeling a bit better. After we drove a few miles down the freeway, he settled down to entertaining himself and Janine and I carried on with our conversation.

I don’t really remember what we were talking about, but at one point, one of us stopped for air – it’s so funny, but I see her almost every day and we never run out of things to talk about – and all of a sudden this quiet voice from the back says: “Mommy, is today almost tomorrow?” I have to tell you, that comment closed my mouth and opened my mind. I didn’t even hear how Janine answered him.

Was he bored? Is that why he asked that question? Was there something better happening tomorrow that wasn’t happening today? I was stumped by the simple question that actually had a lot of depth, and his sweet melancholy tone matched my melancholy mood. Maybe that’s why it tapped on my heart like it did. I don’t know if you’ve ever really watched a child play in their own backyard, or play on a playground, but it’s beautiful. It’s like poetry in motion because they are so intent on the moment.

I think there’s something to be learned from “Is today almost tomorrow?” especially if you’re going through a tough time. Just like there’s always a rainbow after the rain, the sun will come up tomorrow, and with faith, love and hope, I am assured that if I’m given tomorrow, it can be better than today. After all, His mercies are new every morrow….
