Alicia was awakened in the wee hours of the morning to the phone ringing. Initially, she thought she had dreamed of the ringing. When she reached for the phone all she heard was a dial tone.
Unable to fall asleep, she turned on the television. HenryÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s snoring agitating her, she got out of bed. Downstairs next to her daughterÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s favorite chair resting on the solid oak table beside it in the living room was her salvation.
She picked up the bible, closed her eyes and opened it. The passage revealed was the 23rd Psalms. Verse four slapped her hard. Ye, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: For You are with me: Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me.
The hairs on the back of her neck stood. There were goose bumps forming down her arms. She began to scratch. Alicia closed her eyes. A startling vision dropped her to her knees. Tears rolled down her face. The phone rang. Hesitantly on the third ring she grabbed the receiver.
Ã¢â‚“I know. What happened?Ã¢â‚¬Â Grandma Alicia listened carefully to the details being given on the other end. Ã¢â‚“What!Ã¢â‚¬Â She interrupted. Ã¢â‚“IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m sorry, continue,Ã¢â‚¬Â she said.
Grandma Alicia returned the phone receiver to its cradle. She went into the kitchen. Looking around, she started rearranging. Talking to herself she said, Ã¢â‚“The spices belong over the stove, not in some rotating shelf beside the sink. I think the lids should be in this area and the pots and pans over there.Ã¢â‚¬Â
Henry was awakened by the racket. He descends the stairs taking in the view of his daughterÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s beautiful home. He marvels at the plush light beige carpet his feet
sinks into as he winds down the stairs. The living room is elegant with its dark tan and mahogany wood Queen Anne furnishings. The formal dining room is decorated with a solid oak eight seat table. ThereÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s a matching China cabinet and hutch. He enters the kitchen to find Alicia rearranging what used to be an immaculate kitchen.
Before speaking he takes in the sight. An island sits in the middle of the floor. The cabinets are oak with stenciled glass displaying expensive dinnerware. The design on the glass is identical to the China cabinet doors. The breakfast nook overlooks the professionally manicured backyard.
Ã¢â‚“Ya momma didnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t teach you to say good morning?Ã¢â‚¬Â Alicia says, interrupting HenryÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s admiration of his daughterÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s home.
Ã¢â‚“Good morning,Ã¢â‚¬Â Why are you rearranging this childÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s things? I think you enjoy antagonizing Ann. Alicia you canÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t do this.Ã¢â‚¬Â Henry tried reasoning with his wife.
Ã¢â‚“Put her things back where she had them,Ã¢â‚¬Â he said.
Ã¢â‚“She wonÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t need them,Ã¢â‚¬Â Alicia continued setting up her daughterÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s kitchen. She offered Henry a cup of coffee, finished setting up the kitchen and began preparing a hardy breakfast.
