“The best and most beautiful things in this world cannot be seen or even heard, but must be felt with the heart.” — Helen Keller
Felt with the heart. This is such a great reminder that sometimes, we need to get out of our heads and into our hearts.
It's that feeling when you see a rainbow form after a rain shower, or the sky turn to fire after a beautiful sunset.
The feeling of joy when you see a child's eyes light up because they learned something new.
The feeling you get when you unexpectedly hear a favorite song, one that transports you back to a special moment in time.
Like a movie that "tugs at heartstrings", we all have those memories that bring up these feelings in our hearts. Those are the moments that remind us of this wonderful gift of being human.
I've made a lot of jewelry over the years, and what I still say is one of the best parts of my job, is watching the reaction of someone who is given a gift by a friend or significant other, and not only loves it but feels totally special because of the nature of gifting. There's magic in the exchange of giving, receiving, and appreciating, and that is something that cannot be captured or manufactured, but simply felt.
Wishing you many moments of the heart as we celebrate LOVE in all its forms this month.
