My nephew, Ben Maier, came into this world as a very special human being. And the moment I first held him in my arms, I felt it. He had no heart-guard. His little heart came pouring into my heart full force, like a tidal wave. It blew me away. Perhaps because his heart started on the right side of his body he bypasses the typical way us "left-hearts" experience love, and teaches us to love without a heart-guard. I am forever grateful to Benny-boy (as his mother calls him) for sharing this gift.
