Love on the Playground

I’ve been sneaking away.  Doing something I haven’t told very many people.  It’s a pretty special place…

It’s like an ashram- but not.  It’s like a love fest- of sorts.

I’ve never seen so much consistent love in one place.

It’s not like its new to me.  It’s not like I haven’t been there before.

In fact, the truth is, even though I’ve done this a thousand times in my life, I never even noticed it.

I admit it.  I’ve been quietly….

Taking my granddaughter, Isis, to school a couple of times a week.

This morning, as I was walking her in, I saw it.

There were SO MANY parents hugging and kissing their children goodbye.  Children waving back, running off, parents watching with those loving, longing eyes, with a soft prayer in their hearts for their kid’s safety.

I saw the teachers and all the dedicated staff at an elementary school whose entire work life is spent loving and caring for children.

That’s a lot of love in one place.  I could feel it.  It was palpable.  Love everywhere and thank heavens I opened up my eyes and saw it- right there in front of me.

I’ll bet, if I keep my eyes open I’ll see it even more.

Seems like the love- its right here in me.

As it is in you.

No matter what.

You are your own “love of a lifetime.”

See it.  Daily.  And I’m pretty sure you will also see the bliss in everyday experiences.
