I stopped by the Hallmark store to pick out an anniversary card for my wife and found myself amazed at all the different types of cards on love. There are ones for fathers, mothers, sisters, brothers, pastors, friends, coworkers, and just about anyone else you could think of. All

    there is no mention of Beth's shyness, or of her overcoming that shyness to become friends with Mr. Lawrence.
