An acquaintance was bemoaning that she was starting the new year without a romantic love. She felt sad about it. So we started talking about the love that she DID have, rather than the one she lacked. What a revelation. She found she was surrounded with a love she had not recognized. That led to this week’s story.
Feeling Love – #641
We did a show a few months ago on love as seen through the eyes of children. Eight year olds gave their version of how you can SEE love. It showed that love can indeed be observed and identified.
Love is something extraordinary that happens to ordinary people. And when it does, it absolutely transforms. It turns the mundane into delight. It causes smiles, laughter, even giddiness.
Love is exemplified by being kind, and thoughtful. Doing something special is just natural when you love someone. You WANT to go the extra mile and make things better for them.
It is not limited to an age or a style or a type. Romantic love may be the kind that is most celebrated but the love within families is just as strong. And in this age of extended families and non-traditional families, love can extend in endless directions.
Consider yourself fortunate and be grateful if you have love in your life. Look for love, enjoy it, nurture it, revel in it.
It’s that something special that turns the ordinary into the extraordinary and it’s amazing how you find it in the most unexpected places.
An elderly friend found love at the Moose Lodge. With few friends of her age left, she became a groupie with the young waitresses. They chat when she has lunch there. She brings them little craft gifts she makes. You can just feel the love and mutual respect being conveyed across the counter. Yep, the most unexpected place. Step up and get yours.
