    We live between the act of awakening

    “When we honestly ask ourselves

    which person in our lives means the most to us, we often find that it is those who, instead of giving advice, solutions, or cures, have chosen rather to share our pain and touch our wounds with a warm and tender hand.” ― Henri Nouwen
