“My Memaw had a brain aneurysm that left her unable to live alone when I was 15, followed quickly by dementia. She didn’t always know who we were. Some days she talked. Some days she didn’t. Some days she had it together. And some day, well, some days were rough.”
“I always have the perfect response in my brain, but I was stunned and speechless. She cut me off and said, ‘I’m pretty bold when I’m asking questions.’”
“Less than a minute later, I felt someone slowly run their fingers over my right butt cheek from the bottom and squeeze. I was wearing a long, velvet skirt – I could feel it all – and the heat of his hand. I pushed him backward and screamed, ‘Don’t you ever touch a woman like that!’ He gave me a dopey face and put his hands up in the air, as if pleading innocence. ‘Come on, it’s a compliment.’ I was hot with anger.”
“My heart was racing. I don’t remember the rest of the words he spoke, I just remember the look on his face. Just like our wedding day. Our little girl will forever know the joy he felt.”
“It took a moment to clock what had happened. Everyone was stunned. My sister kept screaming that she’d ruined our wedding.”

“What is true love? Y’all — THIS. This is true love.”
“Do they both have heartbeats?!,” the worried mom asks after receiving the news.
