Potent Quotable

Your absence has gone through me
Like thread through a needle
Everything I do is stitched with its color.
~W.S. Merwin, "Separation"


Why can’t we get all the people together in the world that we really like and then just stay together? I guess that wouldn’t work. Someone would leave. Someone always leaves. Then we would have to say good-bye. I hate good-byes. I know what I need. I need more hellos. ~Charles M. Schulz


" Sometimes, when one person is missing, the whole world seems depopulated."


Missing someone gets easier every day because even though it’s one day further from the last time you saw each other, it’s one day closer to the next time you will. ~Author Unknown

    I like the last quotation the best. My oldest daughter says I look at the world through rose-colored glasses — I think she means I should be more realistic and “with it”. Anyway, I prefer feeling happy for the one away than sad for me. Maybe other people don’t get it, but that’s how it is from this gal.

    I know “The Boy” being away creates a huge void right now in your home and heart, with him being a larger than life personality. Imagine all the people around him now and the blessings he is giving to all those that come anywhere in his vicinity. Be proud momma. I am very proud of you and your family and I don’t even know y’all IRL.

    There’s something so special I see in these pictures – Kelly, there’s a twinkle in your eye when you are with him. I can relate xo
