In her book, Mary’s Way, Peggy Tabor Millin told this story, “I was on a train on a rainy day. The train was slowing down to pull into a station. For some reason I became intent on watching the raindrops on the window. Two separate drops, pushed by the wind, merged into one for a moment and then divided again – each carrying with it a part of the other. Simply by that momentary touching, neither was what it was before. As each one went on to touch other raindrops, it shared not only itself, but what it had gleaned from the other.
I saw this metaphor many years ago and it is one of my most vivid memories. I realized then that we never touch people so lightly that we do not leave a trace. Our state of Being matters to those around us, so we need to become conscious of what we intentionally share so we learn to share with intention.”
I’m at the Sr. Center helping prepare the taco salads and serving the “old folks” today. What are you up to?
See ya later!
