Thoughts - March 17, 2017

“We need people in our lives with whom we can be as open as possible. To have real conversations with people may seem like such a simple, obvious suggestion, but it involves courage and risk.”
― Thomas Moore
It does, you know. Involve courage and risk. That first time we are betrayed after sharing something with childhood friends or adults we admired, sets us up for choosing our words later in life. Yet, we yearn for folks to be open with us and vice versa. How many times have we thought...."if they only really knew me?" How treasured are those friends and family who excuse the quirkiness, who get right to the heart of the matter, straight to the soul. Give and receive. Perhaps the most honest and true thing one can do in this life. Thomas Moore, thank you for your Irish wisdom on this day! - Beth Almond Ford
