The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity, and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, and a deep loving concern.
Beautiful people do not just happen. Unknown
I get to talk to a beautiful group of ladies tonight. I have been reflecting on what to say when I remembered this quote a client had shared with me. It fits. Now what to say for the next 20 minutes? My beautiful partner Cricket will not be able to join me. She'll be there in my heart. My beautiful friend that will be picking me up - said she will be my Cricket for the evening :).
I'm waiting for my friend/running partner. There is a skiff of fresh layer of snow. She will take the tether and fasten part to her arm, and I'll hold on to the other part. She will tell me what obstacles we need to avoid. Now, that is beautiful. I think my tether will be a visual example tonight.
