Two thousand three-hundred and thirty-seven. Big number, right? That's how many miles there are between us, from Randolph Co., IN to San Diego Co., CA. In fact, I couldn't have moved any further away without leaving the continental US. Driving that exact same distance from home in any other direction besides here would have led me deep into Canada or plunging into the Atlantic Ocean. Even though I can feel every single one of those two thousand three-hundred and thirty-seven miles between us, you don't really seem all that far away. Its like you're just a twenty-minute drive down the road.
Thats who you are; always close.
You love deeply, and not just from the bottom of your heart; you dig all the way down to the tips of your toes. And I'm blessed because of it. We all are. Thank you for that love. For always being close. For everything you've given. Thank you.
Happy Mother's Day!
