One unconditional loving soul

"Intimate attachments to other human beings are the hub around which a person's life revolves...From these intimate attachments a person draws his strength and enjoyment of life and, through what he contributes, he gives strength and enjoyment to others." - John Bowlby

"Neuroscientists now understand that this attunement- this mysterious alignment of minds- is, in fact, the central ingredient in secure attachment...it is the very essence of connection." - Stephen Cope

This intimate attachment, attunement, alignment and connection is exactly what I feel with and for my wife, Sandra.  Sandra has the ability to perceive the needs of others.  She understands their concerns and challenges and responds with compassion and love.  Sandra lets us know that we are needed in the world.  She assures us that we are accepted, just the way we are.

We all need this kind of secure attachment.  We all need one unconditional loving soul to share the moments of our life.  We only need one.  That one could be in a moment or they could be in a lifetime.  Whatever the experience, this secure attachment acts as a repair kit.

"There is the possibility of connection and repair everywhere...The self is profoundly self repairing.  Like a seed, the self seeks the ground in which it can grow." - Stephen Cope
