For Now

   When I was a little girl, I had a baby-sitter. I couldn’t pronounce her whole name, so it became Ena. I would spend many days at her home, part of her family.

   The years have passed, and those memories are still very special. I now live hours away from that home, from the maker of the best sweet tea in the world. Today, Ena will be remembered by family and friends, because she has moved to Heaven. She has gone, and I have had to say good-bye. But, it is only good-bye for now.
   My eyes have burned with tears and my heart is sad. I remember hiding under her table, drinking tea, watching the Price is Right, playing with perfume bottles, and being very loved. I’m so glad that it’s just good-bye for now. I love you Ena.
