    The test of love is not

    but he is an over the road truck driver and is only home about 5 or 6 days a month and the rest of the time he is away so our relationship is basically long distance. Does anyone have advice on how to make things work because its starting to get really hard.

    Have you ever been there with someone in person,

    yet felt a million miles apart? I have and I'm sure that you have too. So much distance takes place in our hearts. The miles are turned to inches with warmth and smiles and beautiful words. On the other hand, inches can become miles when words and actions are painful.
