One-Way Street

Congrats! You’re the owner of a new time machine. The catch? It comes in two models, each traveling one way only: the past OR the future. Which do you choose, and why?

I choose the past to the time when my father and grandmother were alive and we all lived in our simple village house together. We had birds, dogs and sometimes white mice as pets. Our neighbors had cats and chickens.

It was a long time ago but I still miss them and the way life used to be. They were the most loving and selfless people in my life and were key players in shaping me from birth to adulthood. I can never thank God enough for them and would want to tell them how much I love and cherish them.

It was not in our conservative culture to express in words how we feel about each other but it was the smiles, deeds and time spent together laughing and poking fun at one another that says we love each other.

Come to think of it… I change my mind. I am taking the one way trip to the future! Where I will meet them in heaven and be with them happily ever after 🙂
