I have not forgotten, nor have I decided to quit doing the Name That Abstracts.  So for those of you who enjoy them, I do too, and stay tuned.  Maybe next weekend I’ll put some more up for you.  I’ve just been concentrating on other things lately.  I have a final exam in my MSA class this coming Tuesday and spent a lot of study time today until I had to go make dinner.

    • Awww…thank you so much for sharing that with me Maggie. I know…sometimes just the touch… I know there are some who don’t really like touching elderly people. But touch…it’s so basic, you know? And a good massage can be such a healing thing…can even evoke tears at times. Thanks so much for your encouragement too. ♥
