To Linger

Dear Emily,

What does it mean to linger?  The dictionary says it is to be
slow to part.  I love that.  In this time of waiting out the 'walrus'
(our 2 1/2 year old grand daughter calls this the cowonawalrus,)
I find myself longing to linger near those I'm not allowed to be
near.

When I say, "goodbye" to grandchildren that I can't hug or kiss,
that parting is full sorrow.

My hope is that soon this ole' walrus will burn off.  Until then I will
linger with the Lord and my husband and feast on whatever crumbs
the six feet distance from my grandbabies can afford.

Love,
Lea
