It has taken me years to learn this, but after being hurt and offended far too many times by people who were supposed to love me, I finally learned that they were the ones missing out. I learned, at long last, that what we heard when we were little and in Sunday School, if you went – and if not, that’s okay, too – since I’m going to tell you, God IS Love. And since God is love, guess what – love is God.
What is life all about?
Learning how to love without regret. Learning how to love no matter what. Learning how to love everyone you meet along the way, even if what you can do for them in that brief moment of eyes meeting eyes is to smile and say hello, that is love.
Hugging, kissing, marrying, adoring, anyone, anything – that is all love, too. But the greatest gift you can give anyone you meet no matter where you are, is love.
A smile, a wave, a handshake, a wink, a piece of gum when you have an extra – that is love.
