“What does love look like? It has the hands to help others. It has the feet to hasten to the poor and needy. It has eyes to see misery and want. It has the ears to hear the sighs and sorrows of men. That is what love looks like.” ~St. Augustine
One of my favorite blogs is called “Diary of a Mom” (https://www.facebook.com/adiaryofamom/) and discusses the challenges of raising children, one who is autistic and has epilepsy. She asserts that just when you need it, love shows up. When you have a terrible day; when all seems hopeless; when the challenges are overwhelming, #loveshowsup.
As I prepare to leave for India tomorrow I am reminded of all the love that has shown up for me: from people whose monetary gifts made my trip possible, to those who have supported me with prayers. The ways that you have helped me to get to this point proves that #loveshowsup.
And now I reflect of the words of St. Augustine, I feel so fortunate to be the love that shows up for the children of Padhar and Panchsheel. But that is how love works, I suppose: your love travels with me so that I can share it with others. And in that way, #loveshowsup.
