Presence


The most precious gift we can offer others
is our presence.
When mindfulness embraces those we love,
they bloom like flowers.

~ Thich Nhat Hanh

Hi Kathleen

I love that quote...it reminds me of an old counselling maxim I found in Irvin Yalom's work, "its the relationship that heals"

happy days
