Lighthouse


I love lighthouses. During a family counselling session years ago, the psych metaphorically referred to me as a "lighthouse" to my husband and children who were "adrift at sea"...or, at that time, the one trying to hold our family together during stormy times. We all were impressed by that image...and it haunts me to this day. Now, I see both my husband and I as a "lighthouse" for our grown children. It has only one bedroom, however, and I think I need to change the lightbulb.

That's nice, Lynne.

Lynne -- this is beautifully done! I love the analogy of you and your husband being a lighthouse to your children. (...and that you used to be the lighthouse for all of them :-)
Wonderful as always.
