"The world is so empty if one thinks only of mountains, rivers and cities; but to know someone who thinks and feels with us, and who, though distant is close to us in spirit, this makes the earth for us an inhabited garden."--Goethe
Chances are you have a dear friend or sister or aunt or someone else close to you who lives far away, just as I do. I have all of the above, all who live in different states. Some of these people I see only infrequently, but they are in my heart and prayers, as I know I am in theirs.
Isn't that wonderful, to know that we are close though miles separate us? Love and prayers keep us close.
So, for today, I am grateful for those who are close even though they are far away.
