… the love you take is, is equal to the love you make.* – Lennon/McCartney
I heard this today. For perhaps the 1,000th time in my life and yet in the context that it was quoted I had never heard it quite so clearly.
In our busy lives we often forget what is really important. We jump from task to task, place to place, moment to moment without stepping back to just ‘be’. And part of ‘being’ is to make sure that we nurture the people in our lives that need it most.
Hopefully at the end of the day, week, month, year… life; it all evens out.
This Tuesday I would like to try a little experiment. Indulge me, if you will, and make an effort to even things out so to speak. Stop, smell the coffee, the roses or whatever else finds its way up your nose and make sure you let someone know how much they mean to you.
The inspiration for today’s post comes from a woman who touched so many and prompted a son-in-law to utter those lyrics… in the end.
Let it Bea!
