Distance is not for the fearful, it is for the bold. It’s for those who are willing to spend a lot of time alone in exchange for a little time with the one they love. It’s for those knowing a good thing when they see it, even if they don’t see it nearly enough…
Sure, there’s the loneliness, coming home to an empty house, the longing, and travel expenses. Love is the acceptance of imperfection as part of what you love. Real love moves freely in both directions. Don’t waste your time on anything else.
Happy Valentines Day!

Wow I needed that. I feel like that sometimes. But I am still learning who I am and preparing myself for that love that God has created for me.
Patience is a virtue!
Beautiful words! For a moment I thought this post was really meant for me, as I travel a lot to visit my loved ones. What you described in your post is completely true! My heart knows wherefore I’m doing it, and.. the time..the money..and distance doesn’t count anymore. I think it’s a proof of how far love can travel. And yes, the loneliness when you get home is there and indescribable, but the love and thankfulness is much stronger and makes it worth and bring joy and happiness to my soul. Thanks a lot for sharing and if you don’t mind I will reblog your because I really love it. Wishing you a blessed Valentine’s Day! 🙂
Thank you for reading and sharing!

No matter how long the distance and how short the time, real love will be always bridged. And real love never fades away, but distance does. Every time over and over again. 🙂 I liked this post from Micheal D. Gatson so much that I wanted to share it
