Absence makes the heart grow fonder.
We are family. We may live far away from each other, but we are always close at heart.
We pick up where we left off, and it's as if we were never apart.
Don't take it for granted if you live near your loved ones. Go see your grandparents for dinner. Take your mom out to coffee. Play with your niece at the park. I soak up every minute I have with my relatives and cherish our times together, knowing that we will have to say goodbye yet once again.
Our house is quiet now. Too quiet. But the echos of laughter still ring in my ears.
