On the way home from work Wednesday evening, I found myself in an oddly emotional moment that I wanted to share with a particular woman from my past. But as I thought about what I felt — and wrestled with the compulsion to call her — I had sudden empathy for a different woman about something that happened years ago.
While it’s still fresh on my mind, I wanted to talk with you about it.
I recently heard a story about two companions who were walking together when one asked the other a question.

“Neither,” answered his wise friend. “It’s the company on the journey that matters most.”
That’s ultimately what this is about. What I have to talk about tonight points to the truth that the person or people we choose to share this life with matters more than where we go or what we do. I would have found that idea crazy even 20 years ago, but it’s obvious truth to me tonight.
