What can we ever give to another more sacred and more loving than acceptance of who they are and what they bring to our life.
Oh, the inexpressible comfort of
feeling safe with a person: having
neither to weigh thoughts nor
measure words, but to pour them out.
Just as they are—-chaff and grain
together, knowing that a faithful hand
will take and sift them,
keep what is worth keeping,
and then with the breath of kindness,
blow the rest away.
—Dinah Maria Craik
