Love 1,000 Times a Day 27 March 2020

“Do not think that love, in order to be genuine, has to be extraordinary. What we need is to love without getting tired.”

This quote by Mother Teresa may hit home for many of us right now. We need to love those who are before us right now a thousand times a day and not get tired. While we are more confined, in many ways, then ever before, we have to figure out how to fill our lives with truth, beauty, and goodness. Who are you checking in on by phone or other method? Who is right there with you that you may already be getting tired of or frustrated with? How can you love them?

There are so many little things that matter. Find ways to brighten days. Read out loud, put on music and dance, play a game of Yahtzee, or step out onto your deck or into your back yard and breathe, walk, look at the stars, or fill a sidewalk with chalk drawings.

Where is there loneliness or pain that you can help by reaching out? Smiling? Sending an actual letter? Love is most genuine in those tiny acts of compassion. Love came to me this week in a simple bag filled with fruit, and two homemade cinnamon rolls.
