Which person in our lives means the most to us

“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

    I love Henri Nouwen’s writing and story. Passion and (com) passion share a common root. There is a certain amount of suffering we have to endure to find (com) passion. It is nice to have people share that journey with us without saying a word and offering advice.
