"I expressed my regret at not writing everything, " I don't act like the others; I don't take any notes of what you are saying."
"You won't need any; I'll come and get you."
During the month of June, before she had been taken down to the infirmary, one day when she saw how sad I was over her approaching death, she addressed the Child Jesus, holding up her finger as though teaching Him a lesson, and said:
"Little Jesus, if You take me away, you must also take Mademoiselle Lili * This is my condition, so You must think over well what You are about to do. There's no middle course. Take it or leave it!"
* Mademoiselle Lili was a little familiar nickname dating from our childhood which she gave me when we were together. It was inspired by a story for children, "M. Toto and Mlle. Lili...she was M. Toto, I, Mlle. Lili.
This was such a tender story and after googling a couple different things, I found the book that I think she was writing about! I can't explain how happy I was to look at the pictures in this little children't book... knowing that Therese and Celine looked at the those same pictures! I'm going to link it here so that I can keep it!
Thank you, sweet Jesus for this little gift!
