Listening

I met this woman more than one year ago. Asked if I could take her picture and get a quote from her about her experience with a local nonprofit, for use on that organization’s website. She was in a wheelchair and was clearly not well. Kept saying she was blessed, though: “Every morning I wake up, I thank the Lord.”

Came away from that meeting with a little nudge toward something akin to peace. She had that effect on people.
