Today was Family Day in South Africa. Also known as Easter Monday, it's the last day of the (long) Easter weekend.
I was fortunate to spend time with my family in my hometown & for reasons unknown to me, I was ...and am still... feeling a bit nostalgic.
We have become so busy being busy that we don't have the time to write a letter (email?) or make a call (voice note?) to our family & friends.
Time hasn't changed at all. We have. We are occupied and stressed by life's everyday events. What remains most special are the people who we can just pick up from where ever we left off.
Whether it's been months or years...those are the relationships that truly matter. I am lucky to have these people in my life. That when I see them, it honestly feels like no time has passed.
So what I'm trying to say is...
There are some circumstances beyond our control. One of them is distance. People close to me have moved away. Far away. With oceans between us.
If the relationship is solid, I belive that the heart knows no distance!
