Interview with the Fermière Jennifer Thomas
And sitting with all the women around the table, the tears started coming, my eyes… And it was like everyone stopped what they were doing, and they were looking at me. And then I just let it all out. They all stayed after three o’clock. The ones who usually leave right away stayed. They all called me the next day to see how I was doing… What a decision. So that’s what will always stay with me. It’s a woman’s support, a mother’s support… how to manage everything, and that support was there. Because they took the time. They took the time to say… some of them leave at 2:30 but they stayed till 3:30. Uh, they all took turns giving me a hug, because… they wanted to make sure I was OK, they didn’t want me to be alone, and they all called the next day to see if I was doing better.
