When people show up.

When things get bad and you are heading for middle earth and down and completely OUT, and someone gets there, to lend support to a faltering you, to go beyond, to right the ship, Jeesh, all sorts of gratitude.

I watched yesterday, as people rallied around a friend who really needed some emotional reinforcements. No names, no places, just a boatload of gratitude, watching good people come forward to act as human scaffolding.

What are we unless we are our there for one another? Who are we, unless we appear for what we believe?

Showing up. Gratitude.
