Revelation

My Dad called him “contumacious,” a three dollar word for stubborn. The man felt ill-used by everyone. He quit every filling station and grocer in town and drove to the neighboring county for gas or a bag of groceries. He treated his family the same way and there wasn’t one family member that he hadn’t written off. Some years went by and the man started back shopping on Main Street and spending time with his family. My Dad asked him, “Did everyone hereabouts finally see the light?” The man only said, “No, sir. I did. I saw the light.”
