This is beautiful.
This is such an apt metaphor.
Most of us don’t understand how we’ve locked ourselves away until we receive that awful diagnosis, or perhaps not even until the days or hours before our death.
I am the worst at staying close to those I most love. If you’re a good friend of mine, you know this.
I am trying to do better.
This season reminds us to savor each interaction with those people who are most important to us.
We will not have them forever.
