My Moment with PreBoxed

During a time not long ago PreBoxed gave me a humbling compliment. She said in a very matter-of-fact way "I like you because you get me." That moment in time was so very tiny but today it is still my favorite exchange with Holly. There is no better acknowledgement or praise to give than when someone let's you know that they are comfortable being themselves in your presence because you accept them for exactly who they are from the first moment you meet.

In Pre's circle of friends and family I am but a brief paragraph in her life's book. Maybe even hardly worth mention. But often the clarity of who we really are shines through in the most simple of encounters and relationships. Pre and I never had the luxury of complications in our meetings or correspondence. Pre was Pre and I was me. Simple, easy and accepted.

The posts and tributes in Pre's honor have poured in and I have silently immersed myself in the presence of Pre. Tonight I have finally found my voice and share a small taste of my moments with Pre. You see I was the fortunate one because Pre got me.

Tiny lines accentuate a sly smile.
Angled slightly the brim of a weathered straw safari hat.
Release and bid farewell to preconceived notions.

Structure entwined with merriment.
The twist and taste of a delicious and savory soul.
Prescribed accuracy of deep rooted notions and purpose.

Delight of a youthful spirit.
Preview of a wise woman's quick wit and amusement.
Contributed with many.
Shared true heart earnestly with few.

    Thank you so much for sharing. She was such a special woman. I know I enjoyed my 'moment' with her, as well.
