Closeness

“There will come a day when you find someone who makes your burdens lighter.  The person who takes all your concerns, pressures, and heartaches and makes them somehow smaller and more insignificant.  They make you feel happier and more hopeful, encouraged.  Hold onto that person — that is a true and worthy love.”
