There are a few things she said which I never forget. I may have mentioned some before but I will mention them again.
Half a loaf is better than none.
Church is in your heart.
If I did not have faith, I could not make it
Don’t dam the bridge after you have crossed it.
Purgatory? This life is purgatory
When last I saw her in Trinidad: (she was 85 and in a nursing home)
“Rolph. lets meditate”
I said Mother, I just arrived.
She said “So what”
I saw her for the last time, three days after she passed over……in a dream. She looked beautiful
“I came to say goodbye” she said “I only have three days”
It was the third day, the day her body was buried.
Mother was Anglican and I went often to church with her. She loved to sing and so,
I dedicate this hymn to her and to all the mothers and the Mother within our heart.
