Just when I think I’ve had my quota of wisdom for the day Melissa suprises me with one of her gems. A little known fact ( I think ) about Melissa is that she spends a fair amount of time each day thinking about the people in her life. She also takes time at night to say prayers for people she knows and often stays awake thinking about people if she has concerns or if she simply had a good time with someone.
It is a lovely kindness she extends holding people in her heart as she does.
Today she was telling me she loves someone. I thought it would be a great moment to spark conversation, ya know – stimulate her mind. Well as it turned out she stimulated my mind.
I asked, why do you love that person? What do you love about them? She looked at me with a very sincere and serious glance stating with complete resolve, why do I need a reason to love someone?
I had no answer.
Once again the young woman I call my master teacher set me straight. Why do we need a reason to love?
If I’ve said it once I’ve said it one hundred times, she is worth listen too.
