Mondays are just young Fridays

_MG_5331 - Version 2

It’s the distance — whether latitude
and longitude, time, or space, or
attitude — that can affect each and
every relationship in our lives.
   You do still care, but you are not
always there. You begin to think
differently, or not as much, without
that regular reminder.
   You can close the gap by phone,
or a card, or quick message, to show
you care, especially when you can’t
be there. But once in a while you
need that smile, the presence of a
person, to make it all worthwhile.
   You need a visit, a little time
together, just to see and to feel
the need. A simple gesture, an act
of grace, can pull you back on track
and put you in the right place.
   You need to be reminded, or
remind yourself, of all that is whole
and good, and real.
   You need to remember that
distance need not be an obstacle,
if your mind and heart is open.
   You may not be there, always,
but you can still feel there.
   Moments together remind you
what you have, what you cherish,
and what you need.
                                                                            j.g.l.
