What I love and adore about friendships/relationships are the masks that dissolve. We become ourselves – vulnerable and raw. As friends, we help peel away the layers of dirt and crud, and we help unmask one another. We encourage each other to look deeper, go farther, and feel what is there – even when it hurts.
I adore our honesty, our integrity, our joint wit and sarcasm, our tears, our fears, and the fact that a Christian and a Pagan can be Kindred Spirits.
True friends encourage development, even when it hurts. Look how far you have come! Look how far I have come!
You know that I am a sucker for quotes. And Dr Seuss is one of my favourite. Of course one popped up today, as I was searching for birthday quotes.
“Today you are you! That is truer than true! There is no one alive who is you-er than you!”
Thank-you for allowing me to be me. Thank-you for allowing you to be you.
I may just have to go into Chapters today and sit on the floor, too. But to read more of Dr Seuss, in the children’s section.
