Subject: QOTD for Friday, February 24, 2017

The following quote is taken from Voyager by Diana Gabaldon, Chapter 15 "By Misadventure". Copyright (c) 1994 by Diana Gabaldon. All rights reserved.

   " "God, he's so small!" had been his second, coupled with an overwhelm-
ing urge to step through the window and pick the boy up. The smooth,
beautifully shaped head would just fit, resting in the palm of his hand, and he
could feel in memory the small squirming body that he had held so briefly to
his heart.
   "You're a strong laddie," he had whispered. "Strong and braw and
bonny. But my God, you are so small!"
   Lady Dunsany was waiting patiently. He bowed his head respectfully to
her, not knowing whether he was making a terrible mistake, but unable to do
otherwise.
   "I thank ye, milady, but--I think I shall not go . . . just yet." "

Sorry I am late this morning! Happy Friday! Let's make it a Great day and give a little thought during your day to Valerie's Lads.

[> I don't know if she confessed it, but I'd wager Lady Dunsany knew pretty early on. -- DianaH, Fri, February 24 2017, 8:44:41

[> [> I totally agree. I'm so glad Jamie had this time with Willie. It forged a bond, even if William wants to renounce it when he finds out. -- Kathy in PA, Sun, February 26 2017, 4:18:24
