How about some of m favorite quotes today? These are some that I try to repeat often to my kids.
The first is from the Notebook ~ one of my favorite romance stories of all time...a love like theirs would be a wonderful gift.
“The reason it hurts so much to separate is because our souls are connected. Maybe they always have been and will be. Maybe we've lived a thousand lives before this one and in each of them we've found each other. And maybe each time, we've been forced apart for the same reasons. That means that this goodbye is both a goodbye for the past ten thousand years and a prelude to what will come.”
