There are those songs which speak to certain situations, certain conditions, certain relationships, and certain people. One of those songs that captures that way that I feel sometimes when I am really troubled by the physical distance between my guy and I is Oleta Adams's "Get Here". I know that two hours to some may not seem very far, especially when there are those in the military who maintain long-distance relationships. I do see my guy almost every weekend, so it is like he has two homes. Most of the time, I'm ok. I mean, I miss him, but most times I can just be ok with knowing that I will see him soon.
But every now and then, I get a strong sharp pang that cries, "I don't care how you get here, just get here if you can." I'm sure most of you can relate. And Oleta's voice is so strong, sweet, and true. Cuts to the marrow.
