The most beautiful thing in the world is the relationships we have with our spouses or partners, our family and our friends. Relationships are built on the things we do for one another and the things we say to one another.
Each conversation solidifies our relationship and makes it more meaningful. Each time we’re able to do for each other what is needed, our relationship is made more secure because of the commitment we expressed and the unconditional love we’ve shown.
I love to get together with one or just a few friends. Most times we get together for food and wine and we just talk about whatever is on our minds. It seems like there’s always plenty to talk about – careers, kids, parents, spouses, good news, bad news.
Just as the food nourishes our bodies, our conversation nourishes our hearts, minds and souls. We reconnect. In conversation, we sort out our troubles, throwing out bad thinking and embracing new ways of looking at things. Our conversation may not change a single bad situation, but our souls are lighter because of the burdens we have shared, and our hearts are fuller because of the happiness we have shared.
And, when we leave each other, we know that our relationships with one another are deeper than they were before, and we look forward to the next beautiful time we have together.
