A spark of heavenly fire

There is in every true woman's heart a spark of heavenly fire which lies dormant in the broad daylight of prosperity, but which kindles up and beams and blazes in the dark hour of adversity.

--Washington Irving 

(This, dear Hannah, is for you and your courageous mother.)


  1. Kindred Spirit, thank you so much. I can't tell you how hard it was for me to write about that incident. But, I also believe it was cathartic for me. Thank you for letting this happen through your very own blog space. Robert and CClaridad, many, many thanks from my heart to yours.
