Caras Vemos.

"Caras Vemos"
When I was a child my mom would often say, "Caras Vemos, Corazones No Sabemos." This loosely translates to, "We See Faces, Hearts We Don't Know."

At the time I took it to mean what I still think she feels it means, which was don't trust anyone just because they say or do something kind. I think what she was attempting to teach me was to not judge a book by its cover.

Today I had an aha moment th
at brought me back to the wise cliche my mom shared with me. I was having a conversation with a mom and she shared some personal information. I extended my gratitude to her for finding the trust and confidence to share something so heavy. I told her I was grateful and that I come from the school of thought that we should be creating "Red Tents," together. I expressed how I find this society is growing but right now it can sometimes be a challenge to find authentic and positive support.

Today when I was blessed with someone sharing part of their story with me I heard my mom's words, "Caras Vemos, Corazones No Sabemos," and I took it to mean that although I can see you standing right here in front of me with grace and a smile on your face I don't really have any clue what has transpired in your heart. I don't really know what you've gone through, I am not familiar with your story.

Today I learned that what my mom was truly teaching me with her wise words was compassion.

I always say Sharing Is Caring. Can you share a moment with someone today without judgment only with love and compassion? 

Thank you for reading and Sharing.

Sharing is caring!
Love exists and Life is a miracle, treat it all as such.
