I was gifted yesterday with the reminder to receive and to allow the gratitude of others to enter in. It is so often that when thanked for something I find myself replying with “thank YOU” rather than welcoming in the gratitude and receiving.
This angel of a person was not going to let me get away with such a canned response….he paused and waited for me to hear what he said. He said thank you for what you do. He looked into my eyes and begged me to hear it. He repeated it….and it was then that I got it—he saw me. Me. He saw me. And he thanked me for being me.
