Answered prayers: Lucia returns

Yesterday, my sister Lucia, 70, moved back to the Inland Northwest. She moved away 45 years ago and though she has returned often for long visits from her Philadelphia home, my mother, 91, prayed nearly everyday that someday, somehow, her oldest daughter would return "home."

Lucia's husband died a year ago. All her siblings are here. She'll be living in a condo in Coeur d'Alene.

I wonder: At the end of our lives, how many of us will have long-term prayers answered?
