“Love is the answer,
At least for most of the questions in my heart
Like why are we here? And where do we go?
And how come it’s so hard?
It’s not always easy and
Sometimes life can be deceiving
I’ll tell you one thing, it’s always better when we’re together.”
Do you know this song? It’s from Jack Johnson’s album “In Between Dreams”. The song is “Better Together.” This song makes me sad some times to listen to, but it’s a great, great song. My high school boyfriend and I used to listen to this song together, riding around in my car. He passed away a couple of years ago and this song always reminds me of him.
It also reminds me that I am surrounded by people that care about me, and it’s definitely better to have them around than not. I have support and love every where I turn and that is truly a blessing. I have a boyfriend who will stay up late and iron my chef’s coats so that I can go to bed early. I have parents who are helping me with school, because they want me to do what I love. I have siblings who are always there for me and know how to make me laugh. I have incredible friends, who understand that I’m not around as much because I’m busy, and still support me in the culinary journey.
Life it better with people who love you and who you love in it. Better Together. I’ll always think of you, Brien.
