I believe that you believe that it happened and thats enough proof for me, honey.

I heard you sing the Ave on another occasion...

It was at a Christmas "talent" show sponsered by the hospital. You had searched high and low to find JUST the right taped music to accompany you. When your turn came, you stood at the podium, nodded to the stage manager to start the tape...the first beautiful opening strains of the music started..and just a measure or two before you were to sing, the tape made a horrible screeching noise and fell dead silent.
Everyone in the auditorium gasped...I was so embarrassed for you. But without missing a beat,came your voice in the strongest,clearest,and sweetest, rendition of the Ave I had ever heard, totally accapela.

When you finished, there was not a dry eye in the house. You received a standing ovation as I recall, and never was one more deserved.

I believe the Virgin was with you that night as well.

Thanks for sharing.
I admire, in a way, your belief that all the things that we need will come to us, if the need is great, and we "shut our mouths, and open our hearts, minds, souls," etc.

But can't you see that your belief might be insulting to people who have unmet needs?

Think of all the millions who died in the Holocaust -- in your estimation, they were in some way responsible for their own demise. Surely their need was great, and surely some of the millions who were killed were able, as you advise, to open thier hearts, minds, and souls. What about them? What about those who died on 9/11? Or their relatives -- they may need their dead relatives back, no?

Can't good people die poor, say, or with their needs unanswered?

Mama, I'd probably come to your site more often if I didn't leave crying every time I do. Thank you for another wonderful, beautiful, post.

Gotta mention while I'm here that "willowfae" who left the comment right under mine on "Sweet Warrior" is my little girl Heather, making Daddy proud again.

Beautiful and touching post Mama. The closest experience I've had to that was doing a reading at my Grandfather's funeral when I was 16. That was tough enough, although I like to think that his spirit helped me through it.
