“The honorary duty of a human being is to love.” Maya Angelou
I remember when my world was coloured with violence. Life was brutal, angry, hateful. But now, love colours my world and I'll take love any day.
There's an energy with violence - an energy of always being on guard, trusting no one, a constant fight with an intensity that exhausts.
There's also an energy with love and a sweetness that feels so darn good. The other day, I watched my girls goofing around together and I thought how beautiful and kind and incredibly sweet they are, and how very grateful I am they're in my world.
They've been my teachers. They taught me love in its fullness. They showed me the power in going the extra mile, forgiving, and caring with no strings attached. Grateful for.....
-My girls who continue to teach me love as a guiding factor in life.
-The touch of His gentleness which first broke the hold of violence and continues to show me that love trumps hatred every time.
-His love that stayed the course, never left and never gave up on me.
-His love that teaches to turn the other cheek. Toughest lesson for me, but also the most powerful.
-And grateful for everyone everywhere who shows kindness in small ways and big. They are shining lights all over the world. That includes all you guys!!!!
Happy Thursday, Guys.
