Painting for Deb. Today.
I just read the most sublime post by the beautiful, shining Phoenix Light ~ Leigh.
It brought tears to my eyes because it spoke of everything I’ve been learning of late.
I asked her if I could share it with you, and she so graciously agreed.
I do it for me
I don’t do it for you; I do it for me…
When I listen without judging
When I love unconditionally
When I support you
When I give gentle advice
When I lend laughter
When I hold your hand
When I sincerely compliment you
When I lift you up
When I allow your feelings
When I respect your thoughts
When I value your existence
When I share my experience
When I share in your experience
When I appreciate your presence
When I am your friend
Or your family
Or your counsellor
Or a stranger
I don’t do it for you, though I know it must seem that way
I do it because it sits well in my soul”
