Ice Cream

Margot had a terrible illness but the cure proved worse. Long days at the hospital, painful treatments. Margot thought she could not go on. One low day in the course of Margot’s treatments, a woman asked Margot, “Would you like to go to church?” Margot said “No, thank you.” The woman said, “Well then, why don’t we just take a nice, long drive?” On Sunday afternoons, they went. They talked and looked out the windows and talked. Did you ever go for a drive and stop twice for ice cream? Margot and the woman did. More than a few times.
