It’s in a sincere and long apology from your husband who forgot your birthday, today.
It’s in the deep listening of your best friend when you don’t even say a word.
It’s in the “you’ve done what you could” of your boss when you don’t win the pitch.
It’s in the excited hug of your niece after you had a really tough day.
It’s in the “i know you can” of moms, every time you hit the bottom.
It’s in the “i don’t mind” of your lover when you ask them to go to places they aren’t really into.
It’s in the “don’t bother them” of your squad when you’re not wrong but the world feel you are.
It’s in the eyes of worry of your loved ones whenever you have to do something riskier than ever.
It’s in the pat on the back of your elementary teacher, when they met you at reunion and realized how successful you are now.
It’s in the tears of your bridesmaid when you walk in and rockin’ that dress.
It’s in the reflex of your older sibling to distract you from things you shouldn’t see.
It’s in the confusion of your in-laws on picking the right color for your shawl.
It’s in the silence of a wise man who knew everything but don’t brag about it.
It’s in the annoying reminder of your grandchild to ensure you take the medicine.
It’s in the memory of a stranger who remember the good you did to them.
In the end,
He’s in the details of every compassion
you tend to forget.
