Mother Knows

Karen and I always talk about how we believe the people in our lives are it.  Nothing, material and otherwise, compares.  Riches mean nothing without having people you love and who love you.  It’s the only thing that’s important.  Period.  The end.

If you think about the most important events in your life, they always involve the people you love.  Traveling to new places is best when shared because you aren’t just seeing something, you’re experiencing it with someone.  Buying things, though perhaps providing a brief level of happiness and excitement, a sort of rush, ends up just being stuff you own.  Stuff you have around you.  But events, dinners, days in the park, watching a movie and digging into the shared bowl of popcorn, walking, playing games, chatting over coffee… all these things involve people.  When I look on my life to this point there’s not one thing I have that I couldn’t live without… not one.  But the people… that’s a different animal, pun intended, all together.  The only things I ache for are more time with people I love.  More time.  The only thing I’m greedy about is time… and wanting more of it.

I was looking for quotes today as I always try to put one inside the Christmas cards we send, and I came upon this little gem from Mother Teresa

If we have no peace, it is because we have forgotten that we belong to each other.    ~ Mother Teresa

It seems, not too surprisingly, that Mother knows what it’s all about…  Here’s to peace…
