I guess I'm just a little old fashioned at heart. I would just be happy with a hand to hold and the love in my heart.

“When I got home that night as my wife served dinner, I held her hand and said, I’ve got something to tell you. She sat down and ate quietly. Again I observed the hurt in her eyes. Suddenly I didn’t know how to open my mouth. But I had to let her know what I was thinking. I want a divorce. I raised the topic calmly. She didn’t seem to be annoyed by my words, instead she asked me softly, why? I avoided her question. This made her angry. She threw away the chopsticks and shouted at me, you are... Read more »
Take Courage! I can't change what you're all going through, I have no words to make a difference, no answers or solutions to make things easier for you. But if it helps in any way I want to say I care. Please know that even when you are lonely, you are not alone. I'll be there supporting you with my thoughts, cheering you with all my strength, praying for you with all my heart. For whatever you need, for as long as it takes - lean on my love.
Whatever a man might do, whatever misery or heartache your children might give you - and they give you a lot - however much your parents irritate you - it doesn't matter because you love them. That's how powerful love is.
Lettering is a precise art and strictly subject to tradition. The 'New Art ' notion that you can make letters whatever shapes you like,is as foolish as the notion, if anyone has such a notion, that you can make houses any shapes you like. You can't, unless you live all by yourself on a desert island.
