When I look at you...

Thursday, January 15, 2009

I had an incredible and moving day today. Someone at work said to me, "When I look at you, I see love." I think this may be the kindest thing anyone has ever said to me and maybe ever will, especially because it was spoken so genuinely. The entire story behind this sentiment is more complicated and more lovely than I am willing to share here, but what I will say is that, if you let them, people will touch your heart in ways you could never have imagined. If you open your heart and let yourself love, those you thought you were helping, will end up helping you.
