Emily bounded up the stairs this evening just as I was coming out of my room and we met at the top. I had changed into my jammies and was putting on my robe. She came close to me and said she needed a hug so I opened my robe, pulled her close and tied up the belt around us both. She put her arms around me, looked up with those big brown eyes and said, “Good, now we’ll be stuck together forever.”
God, I hope so.
