Today I'm very thankful for a wonderful man who is helping me through some very tough stuff. For his kindness, understanding, acceptance and compassion. It's bitter-sweet for me for I know that in a couple of months time I will have to say goodbye to this person, and that is going to be so very hard.
Perhaps knowledge of the impermanence of my relationship with this person makes my emotions even stronger and more valued. Achilles in the film Troy best summed up the beauty of the impermanent when he said: 'The gods envy us! They envy us because we're mortal.... everything is more beautiful because we are doomed. You will never be lovelier than you are now, we will never be here again'.
