One day when Mallory came to pick up the children, she looked at me, asked if we could talk for a minute and burst into tears. TWO) forms of birth control, she found herself pregnant. Apparenty, even in one-room motels, children do sleep at times. He didn't look away, but held my gaze, his own slowly taking on a wry amusement "So it will be different? Sudden gooseflesh ran up my arm, lifting the fine blond hairs.Sooooo, nine months later, with a ton of support from her mother and me, Mallory stopped crying long enough to give birth to another baby boy. "But surely he shouldn't be whipping her like that--at her age? [ Post a Reply to this Message ][ Edit | View ] Replies: I remember only two times in my life getting swatted by my father. I loved helping my patients and their families approach healing----or dying----with a deeper sense of personal peace. Years ago, hill-walking with the Reverend, they had come upon a saint's pool, hidden in a grove.

He can't wrap his brain around the notion that my Shop Motto is "Sewing for Sanity", (thank you, Judie). I have the utmost respect for people who are so connected with their psyche, their own mind-body connection. My nursing career led me in a different direction but I did, daily, feel strong connections with my patients. There are, I believe, some people who need other people. I don't run around sucking the energy out of some poor unsuspecting individual. I really DID have a destination with all the rambling. He was screaming, ranting, generally coming totally out of control. I spit my tooth out and it landed in the middle of his bed. Above the Reverend's bowed back, Roger had seen the tattered knots of fabric tied to tree branches above the spring.

Like the Barbara Strysand (I know this isn't how her name is spelled but I am Really Tired and don't feel like checking the correct spelling) song from the sixties, "People Who Need People". If I have been devoid of human interaction, my personal energy goes bonkers, I feel a dis-connect and an inability to organize myself. Get out of the house and go where I will run into other people I think this is part of the reason I felt called to nursing. I see that apparently I've changed directions a few times with no warning. Too clinical and patients aren't clinical, they're humans. Pledges, reminders of prayer, left by whoever still visited the ancient shrine.

That saying, Fridays are not the best time to say ANYTHING beyond Want another bottle? On a Monday, he might say, What in the name of God makes you do THAT??? I think I still have a husband here, somewhere, but I can't bet on it. Now, we approach business dealings from opposite directions. And the more important to me for him to mumble "Okay. He's downstairs, still mumbling probably, unless he's escaped out the back door. They both see each other so clearly almost always but there are times that their different perspectives clash like mad. I am not saying that we should all sit down in a lotus position chanting OMMMMMM and the osteomylitis will disappear or our broken bones will magically fix themselves. Then the Reverend had bent, scooped up a handful of water, and poured it out at the foot of the stone in silent ceremony, scooping up another and splashed it over his face.

I DID mention that I said just Good Stuff (sort of. His mumbling had gotten louder and the color of his face matched the old bedspread that we retired from active duty to use in the bottom of Maudy's crate. In less than 30 seconds he had calculated what it costs to make some of my wares, only to discover that his wife is even worse at business than she ever had been in the past. I know they were apart for 20 years but even during the separation they "saw" each other clearly. There are hundreds of societies that DO believe in mental manipulation, their lives untouched by any allopathic health worker. I can hope that some of my patients were affected by the energy exchange that happens when there is a skin-on-skin connection between two people. I just read all this blathering and I sound like a loonie tune. One night, when I was the night supervisor, I got called to a patient's room. Only then had they knelt by the spring to drink the cold, sweet water.

The kids, all eight of them, grown and with children of their own now, remember our family nights/camping trips with fond memories, so somehow we must have hit pay dirt.

Well, Cindy's youngest and our youngest were friends of one sort or another (I have always been pretty sure they extended their friendship a bit beyond the platonic stage).

If you have four, it's right near impossible to find ANYONE, including grandparents, who will even answer the door when you arrive.

They had four, one son and three daughters, and we had four, three daughters and one son.

Mama's mama and I met when we were both six months pregnant with baby number four.

I was once told by a very wise woman that no one is excited to see you coming when you have three kids.

This sweet little family found a lovely little first-home to buy and were ecstatic!
