Default TODAY'S GIFT FOR NOVEMBER 2014

You are reading from the book Today's Gift

Oh, this is the creature that doesn't exist . . . . In fact, it never was. But since they loved it, a pure beast came to be.
—Rainer Maria Rilke

The unicorn, serene and white, is a strong and graceful animal with the body of a horse. A single white horn grows from its brow, making it unique among all animals. It is gentle, shy, and good, and though stories have been told about it for centuries, many people say it never existed. We call it a myth, yet in telling its story, we make it real.

Friendship is like the unicorn: created from faith. Before we speak, reach out, believe in the possibility of relations with another, friendship does not exist. But when we share a meal, a joke, or a walk - a piece of ourselves - we open up to two friends . . . one in the other person, the other within ourselves.

How does sharing myself with another create a friend within me?
The the thought that came to mind was "...the sum of the parts, two parts become a whole." Not sure where or how, I just know I found a little of me, my sharing with others in the rooms of recovery, by learning to identify.
