Once upon a time there was a girl who lived a very simple life. She loved truly, understood beauty, and did her very very best to make sure everyone else felt their very best. And then one day, this girl lost her mother. And she was left very very alone.

This girl, she went on to become a young woman who loved truly, understood beauty, and did her very very best make sure everyone else felt their very best. This young woman fell in love. She made a family. She made a home. She made the world of her family bright. She decorated their world with love, streamers, tintsel and honesty.

Her family grew up. They trudged their own paths, made their own families, learned their own lessons. And she was there when they fell and bruised their knees, elbows, and hearts.

Most of the time she sat, and waited patiently for for her family to need her. To borrow her love, her beauty, her generosity.

And it wasn’t until they needed to set a solid foundation of their own they dug deep into her and took the very best of her. And it wasn’t until their foundation crumbled they realized the precious pieces she loaned would withstand anything.

The most powerful gift you can give another human being is yourself. Most often, it is done unknowingly. And when you do, there is no better feeling than knowing they have seen and heard and grown. And there is nothing more amazing than looking into that person and seeing a small sliver of you.
