"For such loss, I would believe, abundant recompense."
~ William Wordsworth ~
The things we survive give us spiritual girth.
On the way to the church for my sister's memorial service-
She killed herself
and I was to read Lines Written Above Tintern Abby
at the podium-
I remember having this inner knowing.
If I could bury my only sister,
I could do anything.
I am strengthened by hardship.
