Day 72

My writing today was a letter to my friend T.  We have been friends for 18 years and she is dealing with pain.   It breaks my heart.  I want her to know I love her and that she isn't alone.

I have found I can look into someone's eyes and see their sorrow.  Do you know how I can tell?  They have a depth to them, a beauty.  The people in my life who have tasted sorrow in any form, death, pain, disappointment, you name it.  They have eyes that take me straight to Heaven.

And they are the most beautiful people I know.  They have walked with God through their own "Gethsemane" if you will.   And it is etched into their very souls, their faces convey it.  True beauty, that's what that is.
