Acceptance, Love, and a TEDx Talk

A few weeks ago, my husband, Jeff Christian went to Abilene to give a TEDx talk called “How My Tribe Created My TEDx Talk.” A caravan of loving friends, family, and myself went along for the ride.

As I watched my husband speak, my heart filled with gratitude as I recalled the journey we have shared and the love and acceptance we have received from so many along the way.

Acceptance…

What a healing experience to be accepted and to offer acceptance… to be enough… just enough… right now in this moment… even with the scars I still carry and the mistakes I continue to make.

And love…

What a healing experience to be lovable right now. To be loved and give the gift of love to others.

One of the most healing messages I have read was from Anne Lammot, “God accepts you just the way you are, and loves you too much to let you stay that way.”

Today, as I watch my husband’s talk, I smile. Grateful for his vulnerability. Grateful to share this moment with him.
