Little Emily Clark

Little Emily Clark  - Listen and Read - Scroll down for audio.

I heard the following story a long time ago. It's a story of miracle, luck, and good chance. A story that moved me. Something I've never forgotten.

Vienna, the summer of 1973. I was having tea with the Clarks. I was a family friend. And, the Clarks had 4 very nice children. Nicola and Roger who were 18 and 19, and Emily and Peter who were twins. And, they were still very young. In fact, only 6. And, the following story was all about Emily and Peter.

The Clarks had recently moved back to Europe from Africa. Noel Clark, the father, had worked there as foreign correspondent and was now doing the same in Vienna. And, this story I'm about to relate had taken place 4 years previously whilst the Clarks were still living in Africa.

It was a hot afternoon down in Africa. An old friend of the Clarks had dropped in for tea. A doctor from London. He was passing through on his way down to the Cape. An international medical conference in Cape Town. The doctor and the Clarks had been friends for a very many years. In fact, they had even been to school together. And, now it was afternoon teatime in Africa. Marion Clark made the tea and everyone sat down for tea. That is to say, everyone except little Emily.

Little Emily was up in her room. She was not feeling well. And, then, when the doctor enquired how little Emily was, it was Peter, Emily's twin, who spoke.

Little Emily cries very much, she's tired all the time, she never wants to play, and, she never eats supper. And, there's one other thing, my sister looks kind of blue”. The doctor stopped eating. He was taken to Emily.

The very next morning, Emily and her mother were on the plane back to London. And, it was all thanks to Peter. In his innocent way he had accurately described the symptoms of Emily's condition. A hole in the heart. And, there at the airport in London and waiting for them was an ambulance. There wasn't much time. Speed was important.

The operation took place that very same night. It lasted more than 8 hours. And, 3 days later Emily woke up. She had come through.

And, 6 other little children were treated for the very same thing that week. Only 2 survived. Emily and one other child. Emily had been very, very lucky. She'd had a Guardian Angel. And, Emily's Guardian Angel was Peter her twin. It was Peter's innocent words that had saved Emily's life.

This is a story I've never forgotten.  A doctor on his way to a conference, little Peter's innocent remarks, and a plane that was leaving. Good chance, good luck, and very good timing. All three at the very same time.  A coincidence?  Who knows?  But, I believe there was something more. Something much higher.

And, I often wonder what happened to Emily. It was, after all,  a long time ago. The afternoon we had tea in Vienna.

May Words

May is month that slips in hardly  noticed.  All of a sudden, it's here.  And, of course, May Day is not only May Day.  May Day is much more as well.  

To begin with,   May Day's a celebration of spring.  This old pagan tradition of dancing and singing around maypoles goes back more than 2000 years.     

Another tradition of May Day is the socialist custom of marching.  A long time ago, this used to be a red letter day in the very red socialist calender.  Thousands and thousands of flag waving socialists would get up very early and march.  And, they'd march all day long.  A wonderful way of being together and celebrating the workers and all that they stood for.  But, the numbers of marchers has sadly declined. Most modern workers prefer, instead, to do nothing at all, or go away for a couple of days. 

And, May Day is not only dancing, singing and marching.  Mayday's also a signal sent out that means help.  This, everyone knows all over the world.  

So, May is a month that is very important. Not only in May, but also the rest of the year.  "Mayday, mayday, mayday we're sinking" must also be used in November.  May I have some more, please is everyday language.  And, may we be happy whilst singing and dancing  around maypoles with Poles who grew up and went to school in Warsaw?  Yes, we may!  And, may I have the last dance with you, please?   

You certainly may!

May Words.  Written and read by Nigel A.  JAMES

April Words

 April Words

April's a month that arrives in great splendour.  There is no other month like quite April.  April is a month of power and force.  And, April's more than a month.  April's a feeling as well. A feeling of strength.  April's the engine that pulls the year in its train.  

Without the energy of April, there would be no early growth, and, without early growth there would be little to keep life together. Without April there would be no early harvests in summer, and, there would be no Mayday dancing and singing. Life would be quiet without April.

And, April's not only the month that powers the year, April powers our emotions as well.  April uplifts  and frees  from the  clutches of Winter.  

April liberates.  Our energy is back. we are recharged.  We are  free to move on.

And, this in a nutshell is April.  April is magic in splendour.  There is no other month quite like April.

March Words

March is a two-faced month.  Unreliable.  March should be the beginning of spring and the end of winter.  But, this rarely works.  Winter, with its very strong grip, just doesn't want to let go.  March has to strugle hard to move forward  to spring.  Spring is no match for winter.  Winter always gets its own way.  The result is confusion.  Cold mornings that call for a coat and afternoons when coats have to be carried.  We have no way of knowing how each day will continue.  March is a month we must take as it comes.

A Saying from Tirol

I overheard this story in a Tirolean Gasthaus. It was just after church.

 January Words 

January's unique.  It happens only once. January is unlike any other  January before and different from all  others to come. This is because of our feelings and times.  January is high expectations we are  certain will happen.  We have, after all, a new year to welcome.  January is bright.  Everything is fine.  Our resolutions are still freshly baked. We still have resolve.  This year things are going to happen. Things are going to work.  And, January's the month when everyone's nice.  There's a universal feeling of good. People are not only spreading good cheer, they are receiving it, too.  So, go into the year with grace and good cheer and make them your own.  Your year will then be just as you want it!  I wish you a happy new year.  Nigel A. JAMES
