Quote of the Day

"Parents, however old they and we may grow to be, serve among other things to shield us from a sense of our own doom. As long as they are around, we can avoid the fact of our mortality; we can still be innocent children."

Jane Howard

I'm learning to enjoy them while they're here. The last time I visited my dad, he looked old. Not "older," but old.
