‎"The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths. These people have an appreciation, a sensitivity, and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, and a deep loving concern. Beautiful people do not just happen."

Yesterday my friend Miguel told me he had read that quote and that it reminded him of me. I wanted to cry. Not a bad kind of crying. Thank you Miguel for seeing that in me. You don’t know how much you telling me that means to me.
