Love is Little
My mom used to write me a note every day and pack it in my lunch. Over the years, I threw a lot of them away, but I held on to some of them because they served as simple reminders that I was loved. Sometimes they had inspirational quotes she had looked up that morning. Sometimes they had an SAT word of the day. Sometimes they just had a little note of how much she loved me. My mom is an amazing lady and has done an infinite number of things to support me over the years - but the post-its in my lunch everyday stands out. She took time to write one every morning.
There is something profound about being consistently loved. Even the smallest note - written out before she would throw in a bag of Jalapeño chips - adds up over time and those little notes became a BIG representation of how relentlessly my mom wanted me to know I was loved.
What if we were relentless in showing love to the people around us in our community? What if we put 2-5 minutes of energy into a little act of LOVE once a day?
