Dental Floss

Sacred Stories

Sunday was the first night she spent in her new home. Awake Monday at 3:30 am her mind went to all the unpacking still needing to be done. She got up and quietly worked in the master bathroom as her husband slept in the adjacent bedroom. Sorting the significant assortment of sample-sized dental floss her eyes landed on one very unusual one.

Her breath stopped. Tears of joy trickled down her cheeks.

Her very dear friend had just given birth to a baby girl late Saturday night. This was an especially significant birth since this mom had a twin daughter live only three-and-one-half days 20 months prior.

At 8:28 am, the new mom sent her a text message, “How was night #1?”

“I could ask you the same thing!” she responded. “Mine was good, but short. I resisted the urge to send a text message to you at 4:00 am while I was up organizing the master bathroom and found this:”

“LOL. I was up!”

This precious new baby girl’s name is Iris!
