I've been thinking a lot about connections again today. The abstract connections of strangers. The timid connections of repairing relationships. The jubilant connections of those who simply feel at peace in their bond. Some days, the connection we have with others shifts.
I was honored to see a beautiful connection between two people today. It was filled with a fragile attempt to connect, a timid bond, a place of shared memories and, most importantly, with love. Sometimes, all it takes is that first move. That swallowing of pride, that deep breath of uncertainty and the scary place of vulnerability can all make for a beautiful connection. This time it did. It was. And to see it, to be a part of it in even a small way....it's indescribable.
Love, truly is, the greatest gift of all.
