"So how long do you think it will be Frankie until things get back to normal."
"Well," Frankie said, "I don't know if things will ever 'get back to normal'. I do know that chances are good that things will be different when Francesca is born since we will then have four children to divide our attention among. I think by then we'll have fallen into some kind of schedule or routine. Francine's return has brought us the greatest joy anyone could possibly know. It has been the best gift of anything and even when things are no longer focused around her I think in many ways it still will be."

"I learned a lot," Frankie said, "Never take anything for granted. Never assume anything. Never ever forget to let the people you love know how much they mean to you"
