Loved

She was a simple girl. Cheerful, friendly, kind, open. Then, she began to be rebuffed. Smiles were not returned, friendly hugs were accepted coldly, attempts at outreach were squelched. She soon became withdrawn, silent, and sad, rarely ever smiling.
Until one day, we found her. And pursued her. And were persistently friendly. She started coming to Bible studies. Her questions surprised us all. She started to openly desire love. 
The smiles still didn’t come often, but when they graced her face, they shone forth with genuine happiness. Her pain isn’t all healed, but her heart is mending.
Because all she wanted was love, and she got it.
Give it.
