A sister saves her other sister from being hit by a driver and when asked why she did this she said “I love her so much and she is so little I was afraid she might die.” What a loving person!
So many loving gestures I have shared here. Like internalizing his message. Or when you can see clearly now. I have learned that good intensions aren’t enough. That the Internet can have an outpouring of love for a dying girls bucket list.
What can do we to love each other every day when we don’t have the opportunity or need to put our life on the line? Can we be patient with someone for 30 seconds longer? Can we share something that we might not want to share because we are afraid it might get ruined? Can we make the extra effort to take someone somewhere they need to go? I have learned that love doesn’t consist in grand gestures like laying down your coat over a muddle puddle or slaying the metaphorical dragon. It costs more in being patient and kind and loving someone with their faults and weaknesses just like you have in yourself. We are all imperfect, but strangely we sometimes often seek to have others live up to our ideas of perfection.
