“Eventually you will come to understand that love heals everything, and love is all there is.” ~ Gary Zukay
I watched a little boy today, as he held the hand of his baby sister.
Every few steps, he would pause for a moment, pull her hand in just a little closer, and ‘whisper’ loudly something into her ear.
And each time, the little girl would turn back to her brother and share the most delightful of giggles in return.
Not ever wanting to miss out on these most amazing ‘momentary gifts’—and quite possibly because curiosity simply got the better of me—I carefully made my way closer up through the aisle, and just a few very short steps away.
And, as I reached for a box on the highest of shelves, I could finally hear just exactly what he was saying,
“I’m the big brother, and my job is to protect you. And your job is to just love me back.”
“We love: that’s why life is full of so many wonderful gifts.” ~ Rumi
*Namaste* to my most beautiful friends—I wish you all of the love and peace this Universe has to offer, and that you all may find the joy in your lives.
But mostly, I wish for you a moment just like this.

The following is a compilation of videos sent in from people all around the world, and sharing what love “looks like” to them. It’s really rather beautiful.
