Echoes Roll From Soul to Soul

Wednesday, April 14, 2021

While my mother was in the hospital last week,
Before she had the stroke,
My mom had me look up a poem that she had memorized as a child... she wanted to be sure of a few words that eluded her certainty (turns out that she was right all along) She memorized it as a child, close to 90 years ago!

Alfred, Lord Tennyson wrote “Splendor Falls”, and one of the lines reads “Our echoes roll from soul to soul, and grow forever and forever.”

So I’m thinking that her life is like those echoes that roll....

I’m not doing much while sitting by her unconscious side, but I feel like I’m getting a lot done.... nowhere else I’d rather be...

One day at a time...... always one day at a time....!
