If of all thy worldly goods thou art bereft,And two loaves loafs of bread are all that you have left,Sell one loaf, and with the doughBuy a hyacinth to feed thy soul.
My Mother's friend taught me that poem and I recited it to Nell when I took her a hyacinth for the 90th anniversary of her birth (which was yesterday) - Of course you know Nell. I had the most delicious bowl of chili for lunch and we had a nice visit. I have a card for her but I forgot to take it so now I have another excuse to go see her. It was a wonderful way to break the day. Hugs, j
