sister joanne pronounces beautiful as "beauty-full." it is a word she uses a lot. it makes me happy and i tell my mother, who reminds me that this is how my grandmother ruth used to pronounce this word as well. a reminder that hurts as it is a reminder of something i do not remember and a reminder that i also do not remember my grandmother's voice.
