Directional Synchronicity: Synchronicity Circle

This story is a little long but well worth it.

A fellow Synchronicity fan, Sophia, posted a comment in one of my earlier blogs about how she had a synchronicity with my blog. Well, I haven't poked around the blogosphere for a while so I decided to go read her blog. (Which is fabulous by the way).  I read one post about a dream she had in which she had a sheet that said she was a Rosicrucian.
This post reminded me about my Grandmother who was very involved with the Rosicrucians in the 1950s. I had previously done a google search on her and was pleased to find her name listed in a directory, but I never found anything else. Seeing Sophia's blog reminded me to check again, since I know people are adding to google every day.

And here's what I found. A lovely POEM.  To my recollection, I have never seen this poem by my grandmother before.  It touched me in ways I cannot articulate.  My grandmother died when I was ten and I never got to know her very well.  Anyways... without further ado, here it is.  THANK YOU SOPHIA!

Two Songs
To awaken in the morning 
With a song on your lips,
And to retire at night
With a song in your heart,
That, my child, is living.
- Bertha Miles, F.R.C.

This is maybe the second time in all my years of blogging (four) that a blog post has brought tears to my eyes and given me chills.

It has been truly heartwarming reading this, and it brings me great joy to know that you were able to find a piece of your grandmother's history. Her poem spoke volumes in just a few words.
