Recently a friend called in tears.. as I tried to offer comfort and friendship, I was mindful of what a gift true friendship is. ... It is those special souls with whom we can share anything, be ourselves, and support one another.
This quote I have often shared with a close friend. It has been credited to a few different authors, most often Twain or Souza. I find its beauty and importance in the times that we find joy, and too those we find tears. Amidst a recent talk with a friend who was hurting, I find it's wisdom.
"Dance like no one is watching. Sing like no one is ...listening. Love like you've never been hurt and live like it's heaven on Earth." — (Twain & Souza)
