Spent time with The Brown Dot today, riding in the car to go see my cousin and her husband. We were greeted with love and shown their beautiful, and I mean beautiful house and then sat and talked for a long time. Each had wonderful things to say and listened to fears and hopes. It was the best day. I can't think of another day as satisfying as this one.
I have said this for years but it bears repeating: There is nothing in this world more important than relationships. In fact, I'm going to stick my neck out and say it's the only thing important. Everything else is good or bad, needed or not but relationships are it. They really are. I am lucky to have good ones with my kiddies, who are all grown up but they are still my kiddies. And good ones with extended family. And good ones with friends. The best of all is with Phil, of course, and even more important is Heavenly Father and Jesus. Without them none of this would be possible. And it's good. All good.
May God bless each of you to have good relationships with all those in your life. And for those or you struggling, just hang on. Be patient. Show great love. Things work out. It doesn't seem like it will, but be patient. Life is long and if it doesn't happen here in this life, well, life is also short but eternity is...well, eternal. And things will happen there that will fix it all. You will be happy. I know this.
