......From the lady at the church today who couldn't carry the heavy pot plants to her car, and I just happened to be turn up at the right time & carried them out for her (she actually said I "made her day" (wow!)
...... To the love / support / caring / nursing that I am giving right now - where I KNOW without a doubt that I AM "making a difference" (in fact I've been providing that care for over 3 years now, on & off.... just more so of late)
I'm not writing this post to blow my own trumpet, I'm just writing because sometimes the lesson we learn comes from things said & done (or NOT done, when they could have been, should have been).
Unintentionally hurting others and/or others unintentionally hurting you - either way, it's when the hurt REALLY hurts that the lessons begin. For that I am truly grateful. It's painful. It's hard. It hurts and at 60 I am STILL learning.
It’s said that “what we see in others is a reflection of ourselves”.
And it causes me to ask those 'hard' questions of myself.
To step back. To take a few long - slow - deep - breaths.
To listen with my heart and my soul.
And to thank 'the Messenger'
And for all of that I am grateful
I hope that this post might help others
