Can't Get Enough

My neighbor died unexpectedly a couple of weeks ago. Dan was one of the nicest people I've ever met. The embodiment of the proverbial "nice guy".

In talking with his widow, the equally nice Joan, I learned they'd been together since the age of 12. Sixty-two years they spent together. Fifty-four of them, they were married. She looked me in the eyes and said, "I'm lost without him. We were so close. We've spent most of our lives together and I can't believe it's over."

You can love someone so much, that no amount of time with them will ever be enough...

At The End of the Day

We collapse exhausted on a regular basis
There is a question we ask each other regularly
"Why in the world are we doing this?"
The passion, the drive, the motivation just won't die
We press on
We are blessed
We are Lighting
