The term kindred spirit refers to a person who shares beliefs, attitudes, feelings or features with another. It means having a similar or related origin, nature or character. It is also called kindred soul.
Right on the heels of my last post, I received this rather unexpected text message from K last night:
I don’t think I can begin to describe how I feel about what she said! I just thought she would think my gift was silly or weird (it was a strange combination of little things that were completely unrelated to anything). But for her to come back with this… well, I was more than elated! There was nothing anyone could do to steal the smile off my face!
I have always *wanted* to believe that K thought more of me than just a student in her program, and I think this is more than I ever imagined.
I need to hold onto this feeling of excitement for as long as I can.
