    that true friendship continues to grow, even over the longest distance. Same goes for true love.

    that's nice - thanks.

    i have a pal in Florida and she often asks for some 'insparational material' because she is in a programme at the moment where she reads inspirational stuff out to the others in the class - so thanks for this
