I have become an official Downton Abbey addict. One of my favorite characters is Anna. She is resilient, and she loves Mr. Bates with all of his baggage and his cane.
I love the fact that the show’s producers/directors/writers are not afraid to show Mr. Bates’ wrinkles and scars. He has them. Those of us who have lived a full life, have them, too. May you be blessed with a loving relationship.
