Welcome back, Tre. Oh, how I wish the circumstances were different. Once again, you’ve given a searing testament of what love looks like, in a way that no one else could.
I hope that above the drone of a breaking heart and beyond a veil of tears, you will be able to sense this other side of love right before your very eyes.
All these wonderful comments are from people — no, friends — who have come to know and cherish you because consistently you reveal the innermost parts of yourself during seasons of famine and feast, in a voice that makes your rain and sunshine our own. And at its core, isn’t that what love is? Acceptance and understanding.
In time, I hope you see that these comments are but another testament of what love looks like.
(Now put on this ring and coat of many colors.)
