I told Diane about feeling Mommy in my room. I knew Diane would believe
me. But she told me not to tell Daddy or Mamma. Diane got really serious after
I told about hearing Mommy humming, Yesterday Diane gave me a special oil mix that
I should apply every time I showered — coconut oil, tea tree oil, and
something else, something sickly sweet and sticky that makes me feel sleepy, she won’t say what this is.
Diane also makes me say a
special prayer, at breakfast with her, and at midday and before bed. The first
day I had to recite it over and over like a chant until I know it:
My refuge and my fortress, my God in whom
I trust deliver me from the snare
Of deadly pestilence.
Cover me under your wings,
I fear not the terror of the night,
I fear not the pestilence that stalks in
darkness, nor the destruction that waits at noonday
In the Lord’s dwelling place I take
His Angels are commanded to protect me
with long life
I will honour the Lord my God and show him
took me a while to know the prayer in full but I know it now. I asked Diane what
are pestilence but she wouldn’t answer. It sounds like pests and I think of
mosquitoes and ants but I want to hear and smell Mommy again.
