Under the Umbrella

"Ah! Thou gifest me such hope and courage, and I haf nothing
to gif back but a full heart and these empty hands,"
cried the Professor, quite overcome.
Jo never, never would learn to be proper; for when he said that
as they stood upon the steps, she just put both hands into his,
whispering tenderly, "Not empty now;" and, stooping down,
kissed her Friedrich under the umbrella.

~from Little Women by Louisa May Alcott

Sigh... Just wanted to share this lovey-dovey passage with you this Valentine's Day. :) This book is so heart-warming, and the movie (Winona Ryder, Christian Bale) is fabulous, too. Happy Sunday!
