To love a person is to learn the song that is in their heart, and to sing it to them when they have forgotten. Unknown
Who am I? What do I want? What do I love? What do I believe in? What do I have to say? What’s important for me to do?
At one point in my life, I couldn’t answer these questions. I was working too hard for too long, and I didn’t have time to ask. Then, I was working so hard because I didn’t know the answers, and I was afraid to ask.
Even though I had forgotten my song, those who loved me hadn’t. My husband, my parents, my sister, they knew me. When I finally made space in my life to listen again to my song, I couldn’t quite hear it. But they were there to remind me. They were there to remind me that they knew who I was and that they loved who I was. Thanks to them, I am here today.
Give, because you want to learn the the song in someone’s heart. You may need to sing it for them someday. Give, because you want someone else to learn the song in your heart. You may need them to sing it for you someday.
