‘You both have a most caring heart. You both are my siblings, and your kids blessing my heart,’ reads a note on my fridge that was given to my husband and me.
Sarah, who has special needs, is the little sister of my close childhood friend Rachel, and she has always had a unique way of touching the hearts of those around her.
The Way Sarah Loves Me
Sarah’s infectious joy fills the room whenever I enter the home of Rachel’s parents for a birthday or a holiday dinner. “IRENE! You’re here! Oh, my goodness!” she exclaims, her face beaming with delight. She rushes toward me for a huge hug.
Immediately, I’m wrapped in her embrace feeling seen, valued, and wholly received. Sarah’s tender (and often robust) greetings have been a constant source of love and acceptance since I was 12. She makes me feel special and cherished.
As my family grew, I witnessed Sarah’s love and enthusiasm extend to my children. Her genuine affection fills my heart with pride, knowing that my children are experiencing the same acceptance that I have always received from her.
Sarah’s love is a testament to what the world could be like if we all loved one another as she does—unconditionally, without judgment, and with open arms. Her boundless love touches everyone in her path and is a beautiful reminder of the power of inclusion and acceptance.
