The Message -- for Catholics of Southwestern Indiana 15 JIM and ANN CAVERA a frosty winter Saturday to make a quick trip to the store. scraper and cleaned off the every wife knows, of the windshield have to be We headed with him seeing clearly, and through a glare of ice. I winced r oncoming car as I squinted Soon I turned to Jim How can you drive if l can't seep and said, "How can you drive if I can't see?" We laughed because after more than 30 years of marriage, there are a lot of places where we both have to see in order to get where we're going.

Or, "Are you sure this is good and done?"

Weaving our lives together, independent, yet dependent, we watch the road ahead for each other, asking gentle questions, lending our eyes aS ears to each other. By now we are well aware of theiholes in the road. Sometimes we drive around them other times we plow right through. Neither of us n drive very well when the other can't see, ' By ANN CAVERA Jim and Ann Cavera live and work in Evansville.
