my mom gave me this bracelet when i graduated from high school. i've worn it every day since then, except for that week when it sat in my car because i broke the clasp at the farm. anyone that knows us should know that the last thing i need is a bracelet to remind me she loves me, but it's a nice token to bring along.
that's one of the most important things i've learned from traveling. love doesn't go anywhere. actually, it goes everywhere.
today, as i spend my first christmas away from home, i know that this day is just like every other day. love doesn't change on weekends or holidays. it doesn't grow weak as it stretches across oceans and time zones. if it's real, it's always there. like a cozy blanket to wrap yourself up in. and i do love being cozy.
