"Lots of people want to ride with you in the limo,
but what you want is someone who will take the bus with you
when the limo breaks down."
- Oprah Winfrey

I really like this quote, as it can be relative on so many levels.
People always want to be with you at your best, but there are few in the world
that will be there to help you at your worst.  This is a shout out to all the people who love truly and care deeply for their loved one(s).

We might be looking for freedom from people.

Maybe what we need to to be able to ride that limo alone, and know that we are not alone, and ride that bus alone, and know that the driver is not the only one there.

Yeah, I've rode that limo without people, quite often in my life Alhamdulillah.

We are never alone, but with the Alone Himself, and there's no better company than that.

There were times where I could never stand being without people, but that changed many years ago alhamdulillah, and I see it as a mercy and gift that I learned the difference.

Allahmdullilah. Spiritual ambiguity is the best one :). InshAllah the gift stays with you forever. Most gifts have a packaging and a usage life span. But the Mercy of God, if truely from God is never ending. Ya Allah , The Possessor of Majesty.
