They visited this couple every summer. To this very day, althoughrepparttar husband is gone, andrepparttar 126262 wife lives in a nursing home, Jean Manuel or his wife, or sometimes his daughter will take responsibility to visit and be with this woman. They never forgot and they've always been good torepparttar 126263 people that were good to them. Perhapsrepparttar 126264 other major way that I know that this man had made his life story into a meaningful life adventure isrepparttar 126265 way I feel when I am with him. He is a pleasant, reassuring person who makes me feel comfortable, safe, and as if there is a good time lurking around every corner.

I think he is a lovely example of someone living an enchanted life... a life that has had to be reinterpreted, I'm sure, more than once... a life that is not a life of fame but of private meaning and consistency.

Enchantment in a 5 and 10-Cent Store

Written by Dr. Barbara Becker Holstein


Continued from page 1

Butrepparttar best aisle, and my purpose in this exploration of enchantment, was torepparttar 126261 fabric aisle. Oh,repparttar 126262 bolts of fabric were so wonderful. If only I had a ton of money and a real grown-up sewing machine I could make such wonderful clothes. I would design them myself and everyone would love them, but I had only a couple of dollars and just a tiny hand cranked sewing machine. Still I was in paradise. "I will take a quarter of a yard of this soft velvet-maroon and a yard of this lace trim, please. And may I have 1 quarter of a yard of this soft fake white fur? Oh, I am so excited." A very nice lady put them all into a paper bag. I told her I was making a new winter outfit for my doll. She even threw in a package of buttons for trim. I was so lucky!

Sadly, my money was almost gone andrepparttar 126263 bus was coming. I left my enchanted castle of 5 and 10-cent wonders. I felt so enriched inside--another successful journey intorepparttar 126264 big world and a package of wonders to further play with when I got home. Life was good and I now looked forward to a few more pages of Nancy Drew onrepparttar 126265 way home!
