When you see somebody as an interruption or competition or a chore, you miss the treasure of her company.
“We get too caught up with things: having things, doing things. . . . We risk forgetting that the joy and treasure of human beings is to be with other human beings and . . . to reveal to them that they are unique, precious and have beautiful gifts.” Jean Vanier
Lord, heal my blind eyes. From Mark 8:22-25
