Wong I cringed, I can't even put contacts in my eyes and have a hard time with drops. I like what you mentioned about love and support and found this:

"The power of love to change bodies is legendary, built into folklore, common sense, and everyday experience. Love moves the flesh, it pushes matter around.... Throughout history, "tender loving care" has uniformly been recognized as a valuable element in healing." ~Larry Dossey

... I couldn't agree more. Enjoy your weekend and plenty of rest! :-)
