'Did I ever TELL you I love you???'
That's what it came down to.
That's when I knew.
You know, people will tell you a lot of things, you will have a lot of conversations. But there will be one sentence, even just one word, that will reveal all that they are, all that they will be. All their integrity, all their courage, all their dignity, all their grace, all their truths and all their lies, all will be exposed in that one sentence, that one word. You will remember other talks, other times, but that one talk will overshadow all. For that is when they defined themselves truly. Beyond the pretences, the reputations, they revealed their truth to you in that moment. A truth greater than the sum of all the others. A truth you remind yourself of to decide whether to forgive someone's flaws and accept them, or to ignore someone's qualities and seek better.
