Once two close friends were talking about things of great importance. Many things.

After a while, one of them turned to the other and asked, “what is love, anyway?”

And the other replied, “I can’t give you a definition, but I know it when I see it!”

I have to say that that time-honored saying has the ring of truth all about it. It certainly resonates with me.

Well, I saw it today. Or perhaps I should say I recognized love clearly a few minutes ago when I read this in a post on social media from a friend who just went through a very serious surgery:

“My Home Care nurse is a sweet Jamaican women, who massages my feet with lotion, while singing Jesus Loves Me!”

Yeah, that’s love!

  1. I really enjoyed this. Some say love is a feeling but I believe it is also an action. The love that. The Home Care Nurse showed but rubbing the patients feet.

    I belong to a group that says gratitude is an action too. It’s not enough to say you’re grateful. I must show it. The same with love

    1. Thank for the comment. Would you give me an idea of how you might show, by your actions, that you’re grateful? I think I see the value of that but wondering if you’d give an example.

      Thanks again for stopping by!
