My friend Jared posted a beautiful message on Facebook, so with permission, I share it with you.
He wrote, “While walking home tonight…. I noticed a small memorial for a homeless person …lost to the streets.
Then, I saw a man crying. So I walked up and hugged him. He said he couldn’t remember the last time someone hugged him. So I hugged him some more … and he hugged me in return.
I told him that I loved him. He told me he loved me too.
Smiling, we parted ways.
Tonight I’m glad I chose this path. Life is beautiful…
Let’s not complicate it.”
As we make our journey back home, and with all the possible paths for us to take, WHY NOT chose the ones of beauty and love?
