Broken




We're all just a little bit fragile, aren't we? 

People made of glass, navigating around broken shards that have made their way to the ground. 

You may not know the detail of someone's circumstances, but you can pretty well assume they're a little bit broken, just like you.

My making assumptions isn't helpful, but graciousness, kindness, gentleness are, because as I bend down with my dustpan to clean up that mess they made, some of those glass shards just might be mine.

  1. I love your closing image of the dustpan! What a great reminder to be gentle, to be kind. Visiting from FMF.
