Current Photo Friday theme: Softness



Back in the 1990s, my friend Big Hair Lisa and I went into a grocery store late one night. It must have been near Valentine's Day, because all these red bears were posed among the flowers in their floral department. I picked up this one and fell in love with him because he was the softest thing I'd ever held. Lisa took him away from me, paid for him, and gave him back.

Recently on a daytime drama I watch, a couple exchanging wedding vows promised to be each other's "soft place when you fall." Lisa, like me, is a steel magnolia. But many times when I've fallen, she's provided that soft place of friendship and unconditional love.

A soft heart is the most beautiful place I know.
