Love lifts us up

Good morning everyone.

I came across this image yesterday and it really, really spoke to me. It stopped me in my tracks.

My first thought was, it’s love lifting him up. And I loved that.

Because isn’t that what lifts us all up? What gives us strength. What gives us courage. What gives us hope. What gives us joy.

And love is everywhere. If we look for it.

It’s in the two separate women on the bus that helped me with my buggy and my toddler when they saw I didn’t have enough hands to get off at my stop in time for a rushed driver.

It’s in the way my husband went out to our car to bring in the groceries when I came home from the shops looking wet and bedraggled.

It’s in the way my son looks at me (sometimes, when I’ve got a yoghurt rice cake in one hand).

It’s in the way so many women responded to my post on Facebook yesterday about a special press release about Happy Magazine that I’m working on.

Today it’s going to be my task to find all the love that I can in the day. And maybe I can inspire you to do the same.

Let’s all let love lift us up. Today and every day, if we can.
