The Little Prince “Tame Me”
This is my favorite part in the book. We live our lives zooming past each other, without touching, without noticing, we don’t stop to tame…to make someone feel loved and special. I remember a dialogue from the movie “Shall we dance” and it goes like this:
“Why do people get married? Why is marriage important? We need a witness to our lives. There’s a billion people on the planet… I mean, what does anyone’s life really mean? But in a marriage, you’re promising to care about everything -the good things, the bad things, the terrible things, the mundane things… all of it, all of the time, every day.
You’re saying ‘Your life will not go unnoticed because I will notice it. Your life will not go un-witnessed because I will be your witness’.”
I pray the words of the fox will echo through our lives and our children’s lives so that we will all live as how God intended us to live… to love and be loved.
