“Oh, the comfort — the inexpressible comfort of feeling safe with a person — having neither to weigh thoughts nor measure words, but pouring them all right out, just as they are, chaff and grain together; certain 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 Mulock Craik,
I discovered this quote earlier in the week, and it just put into words what I couldn't. Everyone should have a friend they can talk to without feeling judged or made to feel like a terrible person. I am very thankful I have a friend like that.
The duck couple above visit us every spring. They hang out in the neighborhood for a few days and then they're gone to wherever it is they go for the season. They make me smile and it's just fun to see them hanging out in different yards when I drive down my street. I'm thankful to have this experience every spring. After all these years, I would feel like something was missing if they did't visit!
What are you thankful for this week?
