"They do, do they? Well, you know… let me just tell you something. I think you are a very sweet girl… blah, blah, blah… and I think it would be really wonderful if you moved to Oregon with F.& B.K.… blah, blah, blah… I know you probably aren't listening to me, but I think it would be just wonderful, and I am going to pray about that for you."
Mrs. A (laughing),"D.B. you didn't answer her question."
"Oh, I didn't?, well, dear, tell them that's between them and God."
LOL! A conversation I will never forget!
I wasn't too sure of what to think about all Mrs. D.B. had said… but I was definitely willing to go if it could happen!
Stress was my constant companion. I knew what was happening to me was wrong, but I didn't know how to stop it or how to get out. It was impossible to save money, I couldn't even consider marrying a Marine to get out, because if I dared to look at someone, just watching them walk down the street, my stepfather would acuse me of having sex with them or at least wanting to. I couldn't imagine what he would say if I actually went on a date with someone! No way not interested in that added pressure!! I was trapped! And it was starting to take it's toll on my feeling of sanity.
