LOVE IT! 😀

I sometimes get asked (or not) why I usually sign off on correspondence with friends, with “Just Is,” so I figured it’s time to explain how and why that signature came about…
Yep. My name is… Is. Just Is™, that is.
This all came about when I was attending school at Gibbs College. In the evenings while studying and reviewing myassignments, I would often e-mail my friend, Cathy.
As usual, when writing a letter, a note, or an e-mailing one ends their letter/note with a closing such as sincerely, fondly, or by saying love, _?_.
I would always close simply as…
Love, Is… The “Is” of course, was short for Isabel.
Cathy said it sounded like the “two little naked kids.” I asked for clarification on what two little naked kids (I had forgotten). She elaborated that they were the cartoon naked kids that were printed in the comic section of the Newspaper. The comics would often read, for example: “Love is…” , followed by different phrases, such as “sharing your ice-cream.” After that, I felt like the closing “Love Is,” just begged for added phrase, so I then took to writing ‘Love, “Just Is™” ‘ when closing a letter, note, or e-mail.
And that’s how it all started.

Holy Dizziness! Holy Crap! LOL…
You might be best friends one year,
pretty good friends the next year,
don’t talk that often the next year,
and don’t want to talk at all the year after that.
So, I just wanted to say,
even if I never talk to you again in my life,
you are special to me and you have made a difference in my life,
I look up to you, respect you, and truly cherish you.
Let old friends know you haven’t forgotten them,
and tell new friends you never will.
Remember, everyone needs a friend,
someday you might feel like you have no friends at all,
just remember this…
and take comfort in knowing
somebody out there cares about you and always will.
I love you… and don’t need any other reason than to… just love.
