Part 16 If Oak Trees Could Talk

Welcome back to my video blog If Oak Trees Could Talk! Last week, I did a little Post Script of this week as Amelia takes her mother’s advice to pursue love with a passion! It is my hope that as you follow along to If Oak Trees Could Talk, that you would come to realize that this book is not just a book filled with romantic passions, but a book about life and how to live it with zest and gumption! My desire even in sharing the book through the video blogging each week is that it will inspire you to grab ahold of life with a passion and love unconditionally to the death!


I feel that this book is truly an Inspirational love story, however, in some of the following content, I wanted to state that for young readers or listeners the content may not be appropriate or may be rated PG.

We continue to read in Chapter 9!

Chapter 9

Pursuit of Love

“Well, if you are sure you want to know I will tell you, your Daddy and I made love all night long last night. We felt like the life that had been stolen from us was restored by our passion for each other last night. Nurse Wanda, actually had to wake us up this morning, we were sleeping so soundly!” Helen said with absolutely no shame or guilt. She let out a chuckle, that soon turned into laughter as she seen the look on Amelia’s face.

“Momma!” Amelia gasped as she was totally surprised at her Momma’s candidness.

“Well, my Dear Daughter, you said that you could handle it! That blush on your cheeks really says you lied! I am going to give you some free advice Amelia. Go home, love your husband passionately! Love him like you’ve never loved him before, love him like it could be your last time.   Surprise him with your willingness to be passionate for him. You will find the greatest response will be what you have found in your Daddy’s and my relationship. It’s called a passion for life! Go, get out of here! Go make wild passionate love to your husband!”

“Well, Mother….I’ve never….

“And that is the reason you doubt your love for your own husband, go and do it! Just go and have what you see you want out of life. If we’ve taught you nothing else in life, Daughter, it is to grab every moment as if it were your last! Live in passionate pursuit of love and embrace it, for love is the greatest treasure that you will ever find upon this earth. If you love with a passion, Daughter, no greater joy will you find with Robert, now what are you waiting for? Get on out of here like I told you to do! Go find love!”

“But Momma, I can’t just leave! I just got here!” Amelia stammered.

“I told you to go…., now get! Your Daddy and I are better than we’ve been in a long time, so get on out of here! Go do what I told you to do now! Are you going to disobey me?” Helen asked rather sternly.

Amelia shook her head no. She embraced her mother and smiled a smile that was a combination of both Henry’s and Helen’s. She felt nervous inside, but couldn’t wait to act on what her Mother had advised her. She longed for the life full of passion that she knew existed for her. Today her Momma gave her permission to go after it whole heartedly without shame. She ran down the hall to the elevator and quickly out the Glenview Home’s doors to her car. She sped through the lights and stop signs to get to her home as she prepared emotionally to be the most passionate version of herself. Her boys had baseball practices and then pizza, so Amelia knew that she and her husband would not be interrupted for several hours. Thoughts ran wildly through her mind as she considered how Robert might react to her behavior.

“Oh I feel so foolish and silly, why does this seem so difficult for me?” Amelia mumbled to herself. “My Lord, I’ve been married to the man for Eleven years, it’s not like we’ve never made love before?” She continued to give herself a pep talk.

Amelia’s face burned and became flush. She already felt embarrassed even before acting upon what her mother advised her to do. However, she knew that she longed to come out of her shell and be who she knew she was inside. She never wanted to live like other couples that she knew, just the status quo and settle for a life void of excitement and passion. No, Amelia determined in herself that from this point on, there would be no turning back.   She was going to have the kind of marriage and relationship with her husband as close to the love that her parent’s had modeled for her throughout her entire life.  

            When Amelia’s husband pulled in the driveway, Amelia heard the garage door open and shut as Robert pulled his car in. She heard his footsteps coming up the stairs and a tune of a song that he was singing ever so softly. He was a very handsome man and so sweet. Amelia was envied because Robert was the kind of man that would definitely make a woman swoon. What caught Amelia’s attention however was the little cleft dimple on his chin and an even bigger dimple that seemed to seal every smile. It reminded her of her Daddy’s mischievousness little grins and so she was attracted to him right away.

            When the door to the stairs finally opened and Robert stepped in, his dimpled smile caught Amelia’s eye and she gently embraced him. She lingered in his embrace and asked him if she could have a serious conversation with him. She took his hand and led him to their bedroom and shut and locked the door.

            “Did I do something wrong?” Robert asked.

            “No, I have just left my parent’s and Robert I am taking my mother’s advice!” Amelia whispered as she began unbuttoning Robert’s shirt.

            “Well, okay….” Robert whispered back, as he was surprised at Amelia’s behavior.

            Amelia, found Robert’s lips and kissed him hard and passionately. He responded back to her, but with slower actions as he wasn’t for sure what Amelia’s mother had advised her. The kisses became more passionate as Amelia walked Robert backward to their bed and gently pushed him until he was lying down. She followed him as her body pressed tenderly onto his. Amelia thought to herself, we have a great love and passion for each other, we just do not express it freely. She became even more determined that she was not going to hold anything back from Robert, but was going to trust love and abandoned herself to it.

Feeling Like Mrs. Suzy Homemaker lately!  Had been getting on Pinterest and found all these recipes for homemade laundry detergents, fabric softener, soaps, dishwasher detergent….Had to try them and honestly I love them!   Especially the detergents and the fabric softener!

Recipe for Laundry Detergent

1 bar of Fels-Neptha Soap

I cup 20 Mule Team Borax

1 cup Arm & Hammer Baking Washing Soap

1 5 gallon Bucket with Lid!

Shred Soap with a grater, I used a cheese grater it did a wonderful job….  Put grated soap in a pot of about 6 cups of water and melt.  Do not let it boil.  The whole process took be about 10 minutes to grate and to melt.   Fill your 5 gallon bucket half full of hot tap water.  After soap is melted pour into the 5 gallon bucket with the water and stir!  Add I cup each of the Borax and the Arm & Hammer baking washing soap and stir again.  Fill the remainder of the bucket up with hot water and stir again.  Place lid on detergent and leave for 24 hours!  The solution will gel up and is almost like a Jello consistency.  After it gels, you can either fill all your containers or do one as you need them which was what I opted for as I do not have the space to store 10 gallon of detergent which is what this recipe makes!   When filling your containers, fill half with the detergent solution and the other half with water!  Thus it doubles the 5 gallon of solution you made Yay!  Important to note…You will need to shake your detergent before actual use as the solution tends to settle, but mixes well when shook.. Add about 1/2 cup to your washer and wash away…For my white clothes I’ve added a little more because I have 2 boys that love to go without shoes outside in their bare feet!

Such a money saver and smells so wonderful! I had less than $10 in the bar of soap and 1 box each of the Borax and Arm& Hammer Laundry Boosters.

My other favorites are the Fabric softener with Essential oils  and the Dishwasher Recipes, but will have to post them later, as I have  2 starving BOYS staring me down waiting for their lunch! 

Update as of March 5, 2014:  I am so pleased to announce that after using homemade detergent for 1 year now…That I still love it more today then when I made it the first time!  One batch of this lasted me around 8 months!  What a bargain!  I have shared this recipe over and over again with many of my friends!
