Be mindful of what you teach by your actions. I think one of the most valuable lessons my parent ever taught me was that when someone tells you to stop, you stop, no matter what it is you're doing. (I'm pretty sure the original context was tickle fights, but it probably extended to a lot of ways me and the sibs annoyed each other)
CHOCOLATE CLOUD CAKEOn days when I want the warmth of the hearth rather than the hurly burly of the city streets I stay in and read cookery books, and this recipe comes from just the sort of book that gives most succour, Classic Home Desserts by Richard Sax.
The flip side of true love. Sadly, one day will likely come when one of you has only memories of your love. Remember to rejoice for the good times and that person you lost would want you to move on and still have happy times without them.
Arthur Rackham - this fairytale was a rather horrid one - a true old-fashioned, that is :-D - the princess was put in a tower with her maid, no doors or windows, and they started digging their way out with a table knife. When they finally got out, they saw that a war had ravished the country and everything has changed, no-one remembered even the girls...
I thought of you with love today, but that is nothing new. I thought about you yesterday, and days before that too. I think of you in silence. I often speak your name. All I have are memories, and your picture in a frame. Your memory is my keepsake, with which I'll never part. God has you in His keeping...I have you in my heart.
