In a letter to her son, Abby Aldrich Rockefeller wrote these words:
“I am happy and contented wherever your father happens to be. He means home to me. I really feel sorry for the unhappy people who cannot find companionship in their married lives. I do not believe it is something that happens. I think it is something that is achieved.”
This reminds me of something my mother-in-law has said, quoting a friend of hers who remarked that even a Quonset hut looks pretty good if a husband is in it. I would add, especially if your husband is your best and true companion.
