Excellent summary Rose.  You helped me see more of what Rick did well (checking understanding, paraphrasing, being fully present, sharing her joy.)

Rick helped Kathy move from data back then, feelings back then to feelings now and to an aha moment whe Kathy used the word coalesce to describe how Rick helped her.  Watching the exercise, knowing it was an exercise, but experiencing it vicariously and not as an artificial exercise helped me to get it to as it harmonized with my counter story–  A cool family vacation and the troubling question the martyrs raise again 200o years since their lives were given in offering to the Lord.
