Sometimes my heart beats for just one other heart, so small and tiny, yet so massive and astounding, that I cannot contain this feeling nor expand it . . . there is no boundary to its intensity. It is love unconditional.
~~ Helen Ruby
I’d forgotten how much I enjoy Erma Bombeck’s writing. This one gave me a laugh today . . .
When mothers talk about the depression of the empty nest, they’re not mourning the passing of all those wet towels on the floor, or the music that numbs yourteeth, or even the bottle of capless shampoo dribbling down the shower drain. They’re upset because they’ve gone from supervisor of a child’s life to a spectator. It’s like being the vice president of the United States. – Erma Bombeck
There comes a point–one you’d never think was possible–when you stop caring, just a little bit, to save yourself.
