It's sad if people think that's (homemaking) a dull existance, [but] you can't just buy an apartment and furnish it and walk away. It's the flowers you choose, the music you play, the smile you have waiting. I want it to be gay and cheerful, a haven in this troubled world. I don't want my husband and children to come home and find a rattled woman. Our era is already rattled enough, isn't it?
My goal was not to have huge luxuries. As a child, i wanted a house with a garden, which i have today. This is what i dreamed of. Id never worry about age if i knew i could go on being loved and having the possibility to love... So it isnt age or even death that one fears, as much as loneliness and the lack of affection.
