1. Receiving deep kindness, generosity, and hospitality from a complete stranger.
2. Helping someone for a few hours – and at the end of our meeting, her saying, “Thank you for your patience today – and thank your parents for me, too.” I have never heard appreciation expressed like this – but I absolutely love it. So Mom and Dad, my fellow says “thank you” for the way your raised me. (And I do, too.) 🙂
3. Hearing a great poem:
Empty handed, I enter the world.
Barefoot, I leave it.
My coming, my going.
Two simple happenings that got entangled.
