I'll be over there for a few days. She has a computer so I hope to be able to post from there.
"One thing remember, my girls: mother is always ready to be your confidante; father to be your friend; and both of us trust and hope that our daughters, whether married or single, will be the pride and comfort of our lives." ~ Louisa May Alcott, Little Women
I was out doing my morning Thank You to God for another beautiful day. When I turned to the sounds of small birds in the bird bath, there was the rainbow in the sprinkler. I felt so loved and so peaceful.
"For the time had come when they could talk together not only as father and daughter, but as man and woman, able and glad to serve each other with mutual sympathy as well as mutual love. ~Louisa May Alcott, Little Women

Caresses, expressions of one sort or another, are necessary to the life of the affections
as leaves are to the life of a tree. If they are wholly restrained, love will die at the roots.
