Escape to Paradise

June 09, 2021  •  Leave a Comment

Among the daylilies that were blooming for the first time on the morning after my final chemotherapy treatment was "Escape to Paradise", pictured below. Judy and I tease each other that the Hideaway, our name for our home, seems like Paradise to us. We waited until retirement, like many of our pastor friends, to buy our very first house. So at the age of 63 we got a 30 year mortgage. And began making house payments on our own home for the first time. This house is amazing to us, more than we ever expected. And we yearn to have guests again, and want to share our paradise with our family and friends. In just a few weeks, my fatigue and vulnerability to infection will be past. The daylilies will be nearing peak season (which means the bulk of them will have begun to bloom), and the pool will be warm. Paradise!
