The Sounds of Heaven

My sister Eileen, who is wise beyond her years, told me a story the other day about how her children were getting on her nerves. They were playing, laughing, and making all kinds of noise. She was just about to yell at them, as she was trying to make dinner and the children's noise (times four) was a distraction. They weren't being bad, but they were very loud.

And then she thought to herself, "This is want Heaven must sound like. The noise of little children laughing and playing." She forgot about yelling and joyfully got back to work.

Moe, I am reading this as Tommy just left for the airport to return to college. As he and his Dad pulled out of the drive way I closed the door and heard the Heat turn off. Silence... The saddest thing a parent can Hear!! Chrissy
