Subject: QOTD for Saturday, March 18, 2017 The following quote is taken from Written in My Own Heart’s Blood by Diana Gabaldon, Ch.113. Thanks For All The Fish, Copyright 2014 by Diana Gabaldon All Rights Reserved.


I felt [Ian’s] longing, and my own – for Brianna, Roger, and Jem, and Mandy. Safe, I hoped – but not here, and I swallowed a lump in my throat.
”You’d die for them happily, “ Hal had said, in the long night watch when I’d kept him breathing. Your family. But at the same time your think, Christ, I can't die! What might happen to them if I weren't here?” He’d given me a wry and rueful smile. ”And you know bloody well that you mostly can't help them anyway; they’ve got to do it – or not – themselves.”
That was true. But it didn't stop you caring.

[> From the moment you know of their existence, you strait loving and caring and never stop..well that applies to the majority😊...and as a parent IMO it's one of the most difficult things to do,and that's let go and let them make their own decisions....you can advise but must let them live their own lives....Claire let her family go with her blessings but never stopped worrying and hoping they were safe -- Aussiewench, Sat, March 18 2017, 13:47:40

[> It so true about how a parent feels isn't it?. You can't keep them tied to you forever but you want to. So badly. ;-) -- Marcie, Wed, March 22 2017, 19:53:53
