Reflecting on the touchstones of our lives

When I wake in the morning I lift my head to peer out the bedroom window across the room.  What I look for is Peter’s red truck.  Most mornings he is up before me, has started the coffee, and made the short trip up our long driveway to get his beloved newspaper.  Some mornings he leaves early to eat breakfast out.  Though I am a person who loves solitude, I am always disappointed when the truck isn’t there.
