Filling Up the Cracks

This weekend, one of my online friends shared a statement made by her nine-year-old . The beautiful words were passed on by a number of people because of the profound simplicity of this child’s words. 

Sarah Eden’s daughter said, “When your heart is broken, you choose what to fill up the cracks with. Love or Hate. But hate can never heal. Only love can do that.”

I think now is a really good time of year to spread some love. Actually, there’s never a bad time to spread love. It is, after all, what makes the world go round, right?

So let’s share some ideas.

I’m a fan of angel trees, Toys-for-Tots, Sub-for Santa, and any assistance we can give to homeless shelters and food banks. Small donations don’t take much, and are a good way to contribute to the community.

Or, on a more personal level, spread some kindness and cheer by smiling more, saying kind words, and noticing the distress of others around you. Everyone benefits from small acts of kindness.

What are you doing to spread the love this week?

I'm going to try and spread the love by being more patient, more kind, and more thoughtful. Hopefully I'll succeed!
