“Don’t you know Yet? It is your light that lights the World.”
― Jalaluddin Mevlana Rumi
Some years back, a couple from Uganda came to stay with us.
Each time we returned home, even after a quick trip to the nearby store,
they would say; “Welcome back”!
We asked them why they welcomed us back every time, and they explained that in Uganda there were times when friends or family would leave home and never return.
They also told us how they walked for an hour to the nearby village just to enjoy a soft serve ice cream or a cold drink. Things we take for granted every day.
This left a deep impression on me, and I often think of them with great fondness.
They epitomized love and grace.
