Bestest and/or Me: "Samantha let's have some ice cream."
Samantha: Emphatically- "NO- THAT is a HORRIBLE IDEA. YOU HAVE HORRIBLE IDEAS. LEAVE ME ALONE!"
Bestest and/or Me: "You are RIGHT. Horrible idea- Let's not do it."
Samantha calms. We wait 30 seconds.
Bestest and/or me: "Samantha!"
Bestest and/or me: "We are hungry, let's eat ice cream!"
Samantha: Excitedly- "OKAY! Let's! Oh this is delicious! Thank you!"
And so our sessions went. Samantha was initially disgusted with anything we suggested or requested- Then, she would quickly change her mind and express deep gratitude.
As Samantha tip toed to meet her maker-I imagine that the conversation went like this:
"Samantha! Let's go to heaven!"
Samantha: "No! I don't want to go right now!
30 seconds lapse
"Let's see what is going on in heaven"
Samantha " Okay, Let's!...Oooohhh this is so lovely. Thank you!!"
God bless you Samantha- we loved knowing you!
