French 1856 – 1914 Georges Marie Julien Girardot
The ladies had come home for a visit. Elaine suggested they walk by the lilie pond. They were in deep conversation, each of them describing their part of life. Elaine was now a doctor. Something she had dreamed of doing as a child. Emma said to her “Do you remember when we were children and you asked us to lay down because you were going to operate.” They all laughed.
Elaine said “I wish I could wave my fingers like I did as a child. If it were only that easy, but it is rewarding my career and I have nothing to complain about, other than I don’t have anytime to myself. I don’t think I shall ever marry.”
There was this silence for at least 10 seconds. Then Catherine said “The twins are more than a handful for me. But they are my life.” June, was the quietest. She kept a secret that was breaking her heart. She had fallen in love with the wrong man.
But life is ever changing and often times surprises us with somebody who will change your live forever. Lorie, was friends with the ladies. She was educated and doing well in her career. She had a son alone. Of course, in those days it was completely unheard of outside of marriage. She met a very educated man from Standard and their going on 33 years of marriage. They’ve now reached their golden years in their marriage. It’s much quieter and slower paced but they daily take such good care of each other as their bodies change with age. This is a marriage that changes and adapts to the challenges in their lives. But their young son grew up and educated himself. He’s married and has a family. Lorie is ticked pink with her two granddaughters. They are very smart and independent remembering Lorie is looking forward to their next vacation with the girls. God bless all our children and grandchildren.
