What matters to you?

What matters at all? 


I've found what matters to me.

I've decided that people matter.


In the middle of my pain I had decided that nothing matters. I morned. Deep in the loss of everything that had held dear. 


But then in the middle of myself, in the center of myself, in the deepest of my pain, I found something.


Something does matter. 


People matter. 


In the core of who I am, other people matter to me. I haven't found why yet. 


I know on the surface that God is why they matter.

But I haven't found out why yet that they matter to me.
