Through my days I have always found the greatest mercy comes from the relentlessly patient and trudging men and women who drive the cars I sit in to get from place to place. I cry and shed fragments of my heart all over their backseats and in return they give a complete stranger all of their kindness just by being there. For a brief sliver of time there is a person who is devoted entirely to me and is a hundred percent present in the same space as me. I appreciate this so deeply and I wish there was a way to let them know how on so many days they are a lifeline to me.
