Isn't it interesting how sometimes you do not realize how much you miss someone until you see them? It's like you are going through your days and you know you miss them but not realizing the extent of it. Then, you finally see them and spend time with them and have an Aha! moment. Or sometimes you just have to keep going until you can see them again and sometimes you do not even know when that will be.

There is also the kind of missing where you miss people who have passed away and that you cannot do anything about. That is a different kind of missing because you know, in this life, you will not see them ever again, no matter what you do, and that hurts like nothing else. You can trust in heaven.

Such is life...

Can miles truly separate you from friends....
If you want to be with someone you love,
aren't you already there?
~Richard Bach

Today, I am grateful: for a wonderful birthday for a dear friend and holiday party tonight with one of my 2nd families growing up, running in Crate and Barrel, friends, family and God.

I understand exactly what you mean Rachel...you've described it so well. This quote is one I've never heard before and it's touchingly beautiful. One to keep.

Enjoy yourself this evening!
And if I don't get back, have a very wonderful and memorable holiday with those you love...with magical wishes for the coming year.
