Just a week or two ago, I finally learned why pride
is sin, when someone asked of me, about my
daughter, “Aren’t you proud of her?” I said, “Of
course I am. I’m proud of all my children,” which
was peevish, I confess. A simple “yes” would have
sufficed. But pride was not the uppermost of all
the things I felt. Indeed my cup was full and running
over; I have been well fed, but not by my own hand.

Dear Fan: Sister Alma Rose has MANY things she never speaks of. Hot flashes, for example.
