did you look into their eyes today?
word for the day: connect
there are some days that life just seems too crazy. it is like time is just marching around and around the clock and won't stop or slow down for even the really important things.
after the whirlwind of the day, looking at the many unchecked items on my to do list, food still under the table from dinner, and dirty dishes left undone in the sink i realize it: the most important thing was left undone.
i never connected with their hearts.
in all the hustle and bustle of life, though my heart desires to make connection with real people the priority - the heart to heart connect that lets them know they matter - sometimes all that needs to get done gets in the way of what i desire most.
if i don't slow down myself purposely to look deep into the eyes around me and say the kind words that i have thought about them and just never voiced... well, the connect never happens without looks and without words.
i love you.
one of the most important phrases to connect two hearts to each other.
looking straight into each other's eyes, regardless of what the day held, letting go of prior offenses and fully embracing the broken humanity that lies just beyond in the depth of their eyes.
