H – Hoo-Ha

HMiranda had a lack of quality parental figures in her life and her parents are the last people she would want life and relationship advice from.  When her roommates father (married for 28 years and raised 11 children, most of who turned out ok) offers her some advice, she is all over it.

“I told her as you go through life, things are going to happen to you, both good and bad. But when you sit down by yourself, get your mind quiet, and think over your life, what do you come back to? What do you reflect on? Do the memories you hold closest to your heart make you laugh or cry?  If you laugh more than you cry, then your spirit is good. No matter what happened to you in the past.”

“I’m afraid to look,” I said.

“Don’t be a scared. I think you might be surprised at what you find out about yourself if you’re quiet enough to hear.”

“Mr. Albritton, I would never have guessed you to be into this introspective hoo-ha.” A word I ‘d learned from Darcy.

“It’s Mrs. Albritton, she made me this way, and you know, I don’t mind.” He laughed. “But don’t tell her I said so.” 

Pretty sensitive words of wisdom from a old Arkansas rancher.

What is the best advice you’ve heard about love and life?

  2. I’ve been married 37 years and I can honestly say I’ve never heard anything about love and life that was worth remembering. When asked, I usually suggest that people should treat others they way they’d like to be treated themselves – but if it’s their partner, they should go a little further. Mutual respect is the key for me.
