Wow, Wendy that is such a wonderful connection you made with Francis.. and a beautiful reminder that society likes to keep us focused on material wealth to define ourselves as successful or not. We are lead to believe that to give of ourselves is not of any worth, that we should be striving to attain all of our sensory desires to truly be successful!
Reading this has touched my heart, as it has made me realise that while I might not have a successful Career.. or have children, that I DO have WORTH! I am a loving giving person and I am proud of that, now I just need to work on fully realising just how ‘Wealthy’ I have been and can still be…
I am inspired to truly cherish myself and re evaluate my self worth according to being a loving human being, rather than societies values! Thank you
