I remember the days in the 50’s and 60’s when we left the door to the house unlocked allguidinglight the time and the keys were always in the car or truck.  There was one lady in our neighborhood who had a mental disability who would walk the neighborhood occasionally and you might have gotten a visit from her.  I smile when I think about Molly.  Once I was sitting at the dining table talking with mom as she was preparing dinner when the screen door opens and Molly walks in.  She says hey to us and we acknowledged her.  She proceeded to the living room and sat down and watched the soap opera that was on not saying another word.  Mom and I continued our conversation, because we knew that was about all we’d get out of her.  After about a half hour or so, Molly would get up walk back to the door and says goodbye and we returned our goodbye and she walked on out and was gone.  Never was there a word in between hello and goodbye.  It was Molly.  A kind unassuming soul who’s visits were felt, not telt.

About Jim

I'm a 72 yr old guy, who had worked in Naval Hospital Camp Lejeune for 28 yrs and now retired as of 31 Dec 16. I've worked in medical records, Health Benefits Department, Billing, the IT department and retired as the Personnel Security Manager for the hospital. I'm a musician and Corvette enthusiast. Yes, I have had two. I traded my second Corvette for a Harley Davidson Fat Boy mid-summer 2019. I've already ridden about seven thousand miles. I'm also searching for a fresh new outlook on life with new spiritual insight among other things. I was ordained a minister on 20190202. I've become certified with the American Chaplaincy Association through Aidan University in June '21. I've found that with the unconditional love of my companion, Libby Rowe life is complete through God. She's a beautiful, vibrant, giving woman who gives her all in everything she puts her mind to do. She and I married on 24 July 2015. She was ordained in February 2022. She has a blog too called Under a Carolina Moon. Give it a visit.
