The waiter comes over. “Sir, is there anything else I can get you? We will be closing in fifteen minutes.”
“ No, I’m fine, thank you.”
The waiter feels sorry for him. Every night he comes in and waits for her but she never shows up. This has been going on for quite some time.
“Excuse me sir, but why do you continue to come here after all this time when she never shows up?”
“ Someday she may come to realize that she needs me and I’ll be here for her.”
Meanwhile, Tamara gets ready for bed. She picks up her journal on her nightstand and as she opens it she is reminded of her commitment to pray every evening before falling asleep.
“ Yes,” she thought.” I need to do that…….but not tonight, I’m too tired.”
