We all need that someone

We all need that someone, that one person that makes us feel like we’re the most important person.

nm5When I was a kid, I would go to the outdoor swimming pool by the PNE with my Dad.  I played a game with him to see how far I could swim underwater, when I bobbed to the surface, it never failed – he was watching.   Always.

Our lives are like that swimming pool sometimes it seems. The pool is crowded,  people are yelling, there’s people sliding off the deck, splashing, laughter and screams.

But when the splashes are complete and we look across the pool – it’s reassuring that there is one set of eyes that never strayed. They are looking to see us surface, smile, and wave that we are alright.

That person makes us feel valuable, special even in a big world that can be very impersonal, and even cold.

May we all treasure those in our lives that keep an eye over us in the deep end of life’s swimming pools whomever they be.

We all need that someone, and we all need to be that someone for someone else.

    I love the pool metaphor. It’s so true. I take that for granted sometimes, but some people aren’t so lucky to have anyone poolside.
