Two things you can be sure of in life...
you are born and you will die.
What you do,
who and how you love,
and the impact you make for eternity,
with the time in between
is what makes all the difference.
This was my first birthday that my Mom couldn't call me on the phone. It matters not, I heard her warm voice and her silly chuckles in my head and in my heart.
Sure, I'm sad...again, still...whatever. But I found this old link bookmarked on my computer and thought it poignant. My Mom knew the in between was really important too. http://www.beatricedailysun.com/articles/2008/06/21/news/local/doc485c8d9e1e65f230362540.txt
Enjoy the in between.
call and thank your Mother for bringing you into this world to have such an opportunity!
