All We Ever Wanted…

How many times have we had all we have ever wanted, and yet we didn’t fully absorb the beauty of it.  It’s not that we didn’t appreciate it while we had it — it’s just that we could have, or rather, should have done a better job letting it be known that we were happy to have it.  And when this beauty (a friend, family member, relationship) slips away, they may never fully know what they meant to you.  Take it from someone that has watched beauty come and go too many times in his life…when you have all that you ever wanted, let it be known that they are all you ever wanted.  Don’t ever let yourself get overcome with any nonsense that gets in the way of opening your mind, emotional content, and heart to another that you love.

VL: Now i’m crying!!! I’m sorry too.  Sometimes I can sense that I’m overwhelming you, but I continue to push anyway and I need to not do that if I expect to have you hear me.  I KNOW this and yet I still do it.  I’m so sorry. (In a conversation with my good friend Vanessa.  She’s teaching me a lot about how to interact with people — especially ones you care...
