“I expect she'll walk down the aisle to her groom with a book in her pocket.”
Laurie Alice Eakes

“Crying had made her want a shoulder on which to rest her head, arms to hold her. She'd wasted too many tears alone in her room, her garden, walking along the shore, praying for God to send her someone to share her sorrows along with her joys.”
Laurie Alice Eakes, Lady in the Mist

“You need to trust God so you can trust others.”
Laurie Alice Eakes, Lady in the Mist

Laurie Eakes Yeah, moved before I knew I'd left Texas. Somehow, when I selected my country, the thing jumped and I didn't notice before clicking accept. Must fix. Lisa wrote: "Love the friend part. Have glass on my list. Missed the Uzbekistan part earlier - really? cool...Zradstvuyetche.
