  • Many years ago I walked into the living room and found my husband, Luis, and my oldest daughter watching tv like this; buddies until the end. You see, Luis is always warm – like a furnace warm – and when you snuggle up to a warm Dad it always makes you feel safe.

    Seeing them here in this photo makes me want to hug them both. My girl is grown up now and shines brilliantly in her third year in college. And while I am very proud of her, I still miss those lazy evenings of cuddling on the couch with my little Sweet Pea.
