I'm now convinced that the strongest relationships are built upon those things, events, conversations, stories, and "one-liners" that we can't just recreate for anyone. It has to be for those friends, those best and closest to us. Those who know us and can relate. The relationships we build with those people, they last and last beyond all others. I know this because it is easy to return to those moments and easier still to make sure that those moments carry on in our lives. The fun, the total lack of control while laughing, the love that comes as a result of keeping it alive in our memories is the best of results.
Family and friends: Thank you for keeping my love alive with yours. I hope that we can share more and more of the same in this new year!
