Yesterday, this was in my inbox:
Yes, I know on a higher level, we are never alone. We are never separate.
Any and all forms of separation - disconnects, divides, partings, breakups, and goodbyes - T, are temporary. Very.
You'll be together far, far longer than you will ever be apart.
Forever and ever -
Your oneness, T, is pure truth; your separation is pure fantasy.
Still I'm finding when I look at expiration dates on my groceries, I seem to put it in perspective of when he's coming home.
When my latest box of Macaroni & Cheese expires, he will be 4 months from coming home.
When my new bottle of contact solution expires, he will be home.
Pretty pathetic, eh?
