She broke the bread into two fragments and gave them to the children, who ate with avidity.
“She hath kept none for herself,” grumbled the Sergeant.
“Because she is not hungry,” said a soldier.
“Because she is a mother,” said the Sergeant.

I only wanted him to say he loved me.

Love names are those little nicknames that make your heart melt. Using pet names like Snookums, Sweetie-Pie, Honey Bunch, Smoochie-Girl, Lovey or Pookey-Poo is like sharing a special, heartfelt secret. Love names tell your child that you enjoy her company – that she is extra special and this is the name you use for only her.
— Judy Ford
We never know the love of the parent till we become parents ourselves. When we first bend over the cradle of our own child, God throws back the temple door, and reveals to us the sacredness and mystery of the father’s and mother’s love. And in later years, when they have gone from us, there is always a certain sorrow that we cannot tell them we have found it out.
— Henry Ward Beecher
