I just sent this to my son about my sister Nancy. I will fill in the blanks later . . .
I did not realize how terrorized Nancy is of me (Gretchen). I asked her to wash Frank's jacket. I told her to use hot water and a lot of soap. She brought back the jacket and it did not seem clean. I was surprised as Tide is such an excellent detergent. It even gets blood out. So I asked her if she had used a lot of soap. She said she did not use soap at all. I was shocked but I stayed calm. I said honey why would you wash a coat without soap. She said it did not make sense, but I thought you knew what you wanted and I did not want to upset you. I knew immediately that she is so afraid of me she would not even question a ridiculous request. God sends you willingness. He sends role models. And he shows you just how back you really were so you have even more incentive to change. God forgive me.
