well my dear ones,


At lunchtime today,

I was walking back to my Harley

which was parked next to a van.


I watched the driver get out,

come around to the passenger side door,

open it,

and stand there expectantly.


He gave his wife a hand as she got out,

then he held on to her

as he helped her across the parking lot.


I was watching the man’s face

and the whole time he was holding on to his wife

he had this look about him,

a look as if he was holding on

to the greatest treasure on earth.


(Isn’t that what we’d all like to have?

 To have someone look at us

 like we are their greatest treasure?)


I was struck by the sweetness of it;

and I was thinking,

“now that’s real love.”


Each morning, before I leave for work,

I give my wife a hug and a kiss

and tell her I love her.


That way, no matter what happens,

she’ll know that she is loved and treasured.


Is there someone in your life you care about?

Someone you treasure?


When was the last time you let them know?

Why not lift them up?

Spread a little love and improve the world.


Have a great week!


grace, peace, and love to you,
