A Marvelous 3 Syllable Word


One day shy of the 8 month anniversary, we heard it today come out of Dr. Wolin's mouth. RE-MIS-SION. I sang it all the way home. You can go high with the RE, then whole step lower with the MIS and then another whole step lower for the SION. You can start low then go high then back low. You can do it in a perfect 5th, but never in minor key.

It sounds sweeter when it is song slowly, with meaning. Although singing it fast brings out the joy of the word. You can shout it as in "MY HUSBAND IS IN REMISSION" and you can cry it, as in "Thank God, it's over. My husband is in remission."

But mostly you have to smile when you say it. RE-MIS-SION. See! Isn't it the most beautiful word in the world.

  8. What great news. This is Stacey, I met you at the camp grounds at El Capitan (I think that's the name). I have been searching for this blog site for months - for some reason i had lost it and could not find it. I finally found it tonight and was overjoyed to hear the news. I have been thinking of you and your family. You are all such an inspiration.
