Words can destroy a person more than anything..But the person who accepts you and genuinely cares makes all the pain worthwhile.
I garden a lot with my toddler. The other day I asked if he wanted to hold a worm, he put his hand out and giggled at the squirming. I asked him to put the worm back in the dirt so it could go home and he did, saying "Bye-bye, wormy. Have a nice day". I love being a Mom:)
Watching a Seattle bus driver finger spell into the hand of a deaf and blind rider to ask her destination information. Deeply moved by the simple humanity and service of this moment.
