“There is more hunger for love and appreciation in this world than for bread.”
~ Mother Teresa
I have seen hunger in the streets of the cities where I’ve lived
On the paths winding through Kibera slum in Nairobi
In the eyes of children reaching out their hands for alms
In the in-between space of ribs protruding from skin
It seems absurd that there is a greater need for love
Something free. Something simple. Something so elemental.
Yet I’ve seen it to be true
Some of the hungriest I’ve known are yet the most joyful…
Somehow, indescribably, filled up with love that sustains them longer/stronger than food
It’s the essence of each one of us, the very core of who we are.
The stuff we are made of.
This holiday season, I want to remind you that you are greatly loved.
No matter who you are.
No matter what you’ve done.
I love you.
I appreciate you.
Pass it on…
Spread the love. =)
