When Kieran arrived, her big sister showered her with panda stickers. She wanted to let her new sister know that she was officially part of her tribe. I don’t always do this enough; letting the people I love best know that I do. I’m busy! I’m running late to yoga! I have a project deadline due Thursday! (Don’t we all?) They already know that I love them! (What if they don’t?) So while I’m not running out to a craft store this moment to purchase reams of stickers, I am slowing down to really ask (and listen to) how friends and family are doing and what they need. Turns out there are opportunities daily to place the proverbial panda sticker on someone to say “I see you, I love you, I’m in your corner.”
