this has been a pretty emotionally trying week for me...hard to imagine that someone wishes you pain and trouble for a reason that you can't imagine.....but it seems that at the lowest times there always seems to be a shining light. got a surprise package today from a friend that i've known since 1st grade! she sent me the gift of music (does it get any better?) and this WONDERFUL quote:
Oh the comfort - the inexpressible comfort of feeling safe with a person - having neither to weigh thoughts nor measure words, but pouring them all right out, just as they are, chaff and grain together; certain that a faithful hand will take them and sift them, keep what is worth keeping, and then with the breath of kindness blow the rest away.
-Dinah Croik, A LIFE FOR A LIFE 1859
beautiful, isn't it??? and it's such a rare and special thing to actually have a friend you can truly feel this way about, and i'm extraordinarily blessed to have a few of them.
