Friday Wisdom – The Here After

After father moved into a retirement home, he would often say:

I believe in the “here after.” Every time I walk into a room, I ask, “What am I here after?”

How many of you believe in the “Here after?”

More wisdom next Friday,

    I went to a retired staff coffee morning the other day, and the number of people who, in their dreams, had had meaningful conversations with their recently dead parents was extremely reassuring…
