A Sunday thought... Becoming Real

This excerpt from The Velveteen Rabbit showed up more than once in my Instagram feed this week. And the more I read it, the more I love it.

He said, 

"You become. It takes a long time. That's why it doesn't happen often to people who break easily, or have sharp edges, or have to be carefully kept. Generally, by the time you are Real, most of your hair has been loved off, and your eyes drop out and you get loose in the joints and very shabby. But these things don't matter at all, because once you are Real you can't be ugly except to people who don't understand."

There are many takeaways here, but I think the big one for me is that unconditional love is a special and wonderful thing...
