Love will echo throughout Eternity

If you haven’t watched Call the Midwife, you will at least want to watch one episode after reading this magnificent review by Abigail Johnston.

No Half Measures

There are some TV shows that I could watch over and over and over. During this pandemic and while I’ve been forced to be more inactive due to my cancer treatment, I’ve watched several TV series from beginning to end multiple times. Call the Midwife, is one of those shows.

It’s hard to articulate all of the reasons why I love Call the Midwife. The fact that the focus of the show is mainly on midwives who work with and support women laboring to bring their babies into the world is a big reason. The fact that nuns are part of the storyline and their commitment to the “religious life” is front and center in a humanized and poignant way is definitely another.

Hi, I'm Marsha Ingrao, a retired educator and wife of a retired realtor. My all-consuming hobby is blogging and it has changed my life. My friends live all over the world. For thirty-five years, I lived in the most beautiful area in Central Valley of California in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada Mountains minutes from the Sequoia National Park. As a child I moved from Indiana to Oregon. With my first husband I moved from Oregon to Colorado to California. Every time we moved, it hurt so much to leave friends. I never wanted to move again. After Mark passed, I married again. I told Vince that I could never budge from my roots in California. He said he loved the high desert. I don't think he ever thought he would realize his dream. In November, 2020, we sold everything and retired to the mile-high desert of Prescott, AZ. We live less than five miles from the Granite Dells, four lakes and hundreds of trails with our dog, Kalev, and two cats, Moji and Nutter Butter. Vince's sister came with us and lives close by. Every day is a new adventure.

    1. There is a lot of controversy. My mother and I had some of those conversations. I never got pregnant, so I never had to personally make a choice. It’s hard to know what one would do in those circumstances. The extreme poverty and unsafe conditions on the show, illustrated how difficult the decisions were.
