I love this quote from Glennon Doyle Melton of Momastery. Sometimes we don't need people to fix things. We simply need someone to acknowledge what we've been through. As she writes, "We don’t need a magician to take it all away – we just need a witness.”
During this holiday season, see if there is anyone in your life for whom you bear witness. It is a tremendous gift to be able to sit with someone in their pain. It can be healing beyond measure.
I hope you are having a wonderful weekend.
