interesting question...

"Language supplies us with ways to express ever subtler levels of meaning, but does that imply language gives meaning, or robs us of it when we are at a loss to name things?"

Lucy Grealy, Autobiography of a Face
(Which, I might add, is an incredibly good read.)

Ok.. so I read this late last night...which isn't good for my brain, because at that point in the day, its normal 5 percent capacity is depleted by about 95 percent.
My brain kept inserting the word "chocolate" in the place of the word language. =)
I love the meaning your language gives to motherhood. It has been a great encouragement to me as a fellow mom to read the stuff of life right now, so wonderfully put.
So at this point, I am robbed of my ability to express how much I enjoy who you are Lorie....but... if I could express it... might it give more meaning to our friendship??? Hummmmm.
