Oh, it is so true. What we exchange for quality time with people we love, and if we no longer could, THEN what we would exchange.
I would probably go into a year's worth of debt--ten years, twenty--to have another hour with you if that were no longer an option. Do you know what I mean? I'd scrape slugs off the sidewalk with a spatula. I'd smile and nod to consumers. I'd fold a trillion towels. I would if it meant a mocha, advice, affection, a genuine touch.
Strangers sharing the beginnings of a journey.
(I salute you!)
(God be with you!)
(I will miss you!)
In the darkness of the dawn--journey on.
