Today I am linking to In Other Words prompt “Dreaming, afterall, is a form of planning.” Gloria Steinem and to Six Sentence Stories prompt Change
She worked long and hard to make her dream come true. She had been unwilling to make any change in the plans and schedules that she made carefully and in detail every step of the way. Many times she would cancel plans she made with friends and usually didn’t make it home for the holidays, birthdays or reunions. So often she broke dates with the man she loved and hoped to marry that one day he said goodbye and never came back. Everyone thought she was living the dream she worked so hard and sacrificed so much for all those years. But she knew the truth, she was living a nightmare of loneliness.
“Dreaming, afterall, is a form of planning.” Gloria Steinem

Since no one is MIA I guess the Rapture didn’t happen. I was all ready to go, too. Well, maybe not really all ready, but I’m certainly looking forward to the Day.
I am not sure how I feel about people planning for this event. I mean, it’s going to happen but do we really want to know the specifics? It is just fine with me to be surprised.
I think to know the exact date and time would be counter productive. I, for sure, wouldn’t do the laundry or clean the cat box or think about paying the bills. Then what would happen if the Big Guy decided to change the date because somebody or other hadn’t got the message and needed some time to get his act together? Everything would be a mess.
I think the Big Guy has it all under control and is not concerned with anyone else’s to do list or calendar. That’s good enough for me and truthfully quite a relief.
