"Mom and Dad" (with no disrespect to our four step-parents)

Sitting with his thoughts,
 my father takes some quiet time at his
 80th birthday celebration,
Thinking of my mother; remembering my father.  It is not often my siblings and I find ourselves using "Mom and Dad" in the same sentence; a common outcome of being a child of divorce.  But today on the heels of worship, I find those words come together quite naturally, and so I claim them here: Mom and Dad.  

"It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye."
