On With the Show: Are You Showing or Just Telling?


A Night to Remember

     Raising young children can be difficult at times. One night, my daughter had a bad case of the chickenpox. Each spot itched her terribly. She writhed wildly in her bed, so I tried putting her in the bath with a special solution for the itching. That worked as long as she stayed in the tub, but as soon as she got out, the spots were as itchy as ever. Finally, I stayed all night with her, stroking her brow and saying, ďItís okayĒ over and over again. Perhaps we slept a few minutes, I donít remember. In the morning, my head felt like it was filled with cement. The next night was my wifeís turn, but her difficulty was worse: they slept not even one minute that night!
