To Sum it All Up

The ever fabulous Amy Beth posted this on Facebook today:

"Distance is not for the fearful; it's for the bold. It's for those who are willing to spend a lot of timealone in exchange for a little time with the one they love. It's for knowing a good thing when they see it, even if they don't see it nearly enough." | Oprah Winfrey

This so sums up my life lately. This quote was perfect for me to read today. I so cherish the time I have with my friends and family these days. My best friend from forever and her family are staying on a nearby island this week. Her brother-in-law could not understand why I would drive 45 minutes one way to see them. This is why. I love this friend so much and cherish the times I do get to see her. And I know the distance will return on Saturday. And it will be there for a while before our paths cross again. But last night and tonight. I will cherish those for what they are. Quality time with someone I care deeply for. And appreciating it while it is here.
