Scene from "Howards End" Dialogue of Henry Wilcox "Ruth’s last wish when she dies is scribbled on a piece of scrap paper on her death bed: Howards End should go to her new friend, Miss Margaret Schlegel." Her husband Henry and children are understandably baffled by this request, and a little angry. " Why would she leave the house to someone outside the family?" Her daughter Evie rips the paper up and tosses it into the fire.
I'm certain I think of her while she's thinking of me because I think of her constantly. Today I thought of her while I was at the waterslide park, at the restaurant, and at the movies. I thought to myself... WOW, these are some of the adventures she and I are supposed to be having together. I still pray that God will grant me this one little trifle, this one wish, this one pleaded idea. I drop to my knees and ask him to bring us together.
