Tuesday’s email on presence brought an incredibly thoughtful response from a valued reader in which she shared, “My mother required my attention and I am fortunate that the timing came when I wasn't at work and was able to realize the need to attend to her. But I can't help but think, has she been needing my attention all along and I was not fully present during our daily conversations.”
And then there is this: In reflecting and sharing her story, this reader was fully present with both herself and with me. Her email to me made me feel important and special. Coincidentally, it came on a morning where I was struggling and has changed my whole attitude.
Presence – what a beautiful gift.
