Today’s thought from the Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation is:
The love, the acceptance of other persons makes me into the unique person I am meant to be.
— Peter G. van Breemen, S.J.
Our destinies are fulfilled through our loving involvement with the men, women, and children sharing our experiences. It is not by accident but by design that we’ve been drawn together to share goals, the workplace, or a home. We contribute to each other’s search for understanding, and the spiritual quest that’s at our center finds its resting place in one another’s hearts.
The letter, the smile, or phone call we offer a fellow traveler today will bless our own faltering steps throughout the long hours ahead. Each time we focus our attention on the struggle or joy of someone else, our personal well being is enhanced. If we give away our love, we’ll doubt less that we, too, are loved.
