This Is Love

This lovely, hope-giving incident has made many smile through their tears. Enjoy:

This past week has been quite a doozy for me, and I find myself emotionally empty, physically drained, and in need of true fellowship and respite. I can’t get it from Levi today, as he is taking a well-deserved geek/guy break up in Denver with his buddies.

Anyway, after everything that has happened over the last month or so, I found myself itching to just get out. So, I decided to take the kids to Wendy’s. No play place, where they could share all kinds of yuck with any number of kids. The last thing I need is more illness. But that’s not what this post is about.

  1. What a heart-warming story! Thanks for sharing it. Your title made me think of the hymn, ‘And this is love, not that I have first loved you…..’ or something like that. The very thought of that song softens my heart as did this affirming story. Thanks, Katharine.

  2. Good morning, Debby! Yes — heart-warming is a good desciptor! And I think “love”, agape-style, is what this was all about. I especially liked the effect this mom lent it, for the children’s sakes.

  3. Those are the stories that make you glad to be alive. I love that there is that kind of kindness out there! BLESSED!

  4. Oh, me too, Mel!
    It’s out there, I am sure, but it doesn’t sell newspapers, so the bad guys get all the attention. Sighs.
    Still, if we do what we would like to see others doing, we could change our tiny corners of the world, right? Right!
