A simple touch


You've heard about the importance of a simple touch. You know how vital a gentle hand is with a newborn baby. But how often do we forget with our spouses how effective that same tender, loving touch can be. I've wondered if the Lord could have chosen a different way to teach me such simple principles, apparntly not. The power of a comforting hug, the touch of my hand, a gentle kiss on his forehead, all things I've learned to be more powerful than any medication prescribed to my husband. A simple touch is all it takes sometimes to really say "I love You Duane".

Oh, wow! I admire your ability to remember love and rejoicing, even during the most trying times. Heavenly Father has helped him beat this before, and He can do it again! I know I really haven't gotten to talk to your family much, since I've moved, but believe that you guys are in my prayers. Let me know, if there's anything I can do.... even if it's as simple as putting your names in the temple. Take care! I love you guys! *hugs from Utah*
