    We Need to Know We Matter
    unattributed

    We need to know that we matter in this life. We need evidence that others are aware of our presence. And thus, we can be certain that others need the same attention from us. When we give it, we get it. So the giving of attention to another searching soul meets our own need for attention as well.
    Respectful recognition of another's presence blesses him or her, ourselves, and God. And we help one another grow, in important ways, each time we pay the compliment of acknowledgement.

    We're not sure, on occasion, just what we have to offer our friends, families, and co-workers. Why we are in certain circumstances may have us baffled, but it's quite probably that the people we associate with regularly need something we can give them; the reverse is just as likely. So we can begin with close attention to people in our path. It takes careful listening and close observation to sense the message another soul may be sending to our own.

    Lloyd is like that relative that's always forwarding email. I don't think I have seen a post of his that wasn't a copy/paste.
