[This was a blog post I wrote in November 2013.
I hope you like it as much as I did when writing it and now discovering it again for the first time.]
For asking how I am
and enjoying being with me.
For sharing God’s love when life became confusing
For telling me to let go to uncover what was hidden
For laughing at me thinking how crazy at times I can be.
For telling me why I am wrong when blinded
For waiting to hear what I learned from my mistakes
For not judging me when things didn’t appear the way they should be.
For showing me that there can always be “different”
For helping me become stronger by watching me swim
For listening when things didn’t seem simple
For giving me rest when rough waters invaded my sea.
For making me travel to new places to see new things that could be
For enjoying who is hidden inside of me
For letting me live my life unfolded
For accepting me for who I am and not who you wanted me to be.
For holding my hand when words were poor tools
For giving me a hug when that was all I could see.
For connecting things I didn’t understand
For being honest even when you knew it might hurt
For reminding me it should never be about me.
For cheering me on to make it happen
While waiting for me to grow
Always reminding me how simple things can be.
Like flowers hidden in a garden
Unfolding through time on their journey
Discovering together how beautiful life truly can be.
