reflecting each other

reflections of her 
I had lunch with one of my girlfriends last week.  It filled my soul to sit,  laugh, cry, eat and drink with someone  I love so much.  We told each other our dreams and our fears.  It was wonderful to be encouraged and to encourage.  As we sat there, I realized how important it was for us to reflect truth to each other.  Life beats us down. People say hurtful things and we tend to carry these painful untruths with us. We seem to believe horrible things about ourselves, before we believe the amazing.   Then, a good friend comes along and reminds us what is glorious in us.  They reflect the divine we sometimes struggle to see in ourselves.
I am so thankful that I have people in my life that hold their mirror up and allow me to see something beautiful in myself.  I am working hard at doing the same thing for them.
