Sometimes, what we care about most gets all used up and goes away…never to return. So… While we have it.. it’s best we love it… And care for it… And fix it when it’s broken…. And heal it when it’s sick.

This is true… For marriage…. And old cars… And children with bad report cards….. Dogs and cats with bad hips…. And aging parents…. And grandparents. We keep them because they are worth it, because we are worth it. Some things we keep. Like a best friend that moved away or a classmate we grew up with.

There are just some things that make life important, like people we know who are special…. And so, we keep them close!
