A Thousand Sharings

An excerpt from my current reading - 

“...we shall create a thousand strands, great and small,
that will link us together.
Then we shall be so close that it would be impossible
– unthinkable – for either of us to suppose
that we could recreate such closeness with anyone else. 
And our trust in each other will not only
be based on love and loyalty
but on the fact of a thousand sharings
– a thousand strains twisted into something unbreakable.”

The secret of enduring love from A Severe Mercy”

I love it.  I love the image.  
I love the reality of it, too.  

There is always something new to discover 
about your beloved and alongside your beloved.
A new strand to add into the thousands and thousands;
And the bond strengthens.

Me and Mo.  She's part of the strands that bind Scott and I

One of my all-time favorite books! And so quote-worthy! I need to re-read it.
