"Touch is the most fundamental sense. A baby experiences it, all over, before he is born and long after he learns to use sight, hearing, or taste, and no human ever ceases to need it. Keep your children short on pocket money but long on hugs."
I started to read Lightning by Dean R Koontz tonight because I stopped for dinner on the way home and didn't have the book I'm currently reading with me. It had this quote at the beginning of the book:
Being deeply loved by someone
gives you strength;
while loving someone deeply
gives you courage.
The apartment is cleaned (and dusted too!). The huge stack of cardboard boxes have been delivered to soon moving people. The pile of clothes to be rehomed has been rehomed. Yay to progress on the to do list!
Friday was my mom's birthday, but I was not near a keyboard very much, so happy belated birthday, Mom!
Today is Bill's 40th birthday! From all accounts, it sounds like his party was a lot of fun. :)
And the quote of the day for today:
The only time you run out of chances is when you stop taking them.
So happy 40th birthday to Bill and happy 39th(*) to Mom!
