now that'll blog

I'm mostly over my peevishness. But there was a fantastic part of that dynamic that I have to share.

In the morning, after I had spent about 4 hours total with the mother and sisters of the patient, his uncle returned to say goodbye. He spent some time with his nephew and then (within two feet of me) said to the mother, "Where is the priest?"

Now, I was a little taken aback and didn't say or do anything. But this lady turned her head around and said quite politely but with emphasis, "This is the priest."

And I said to myself, Good on you, sister!

Now that'll blog. :)
