A Moment Just Like This.


"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 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 possible because curiosity simply got the better of me—I carefully made my way closer and up through the aisle, and just until I was able to hear what he was saying.

And, as I reached for a box on the highest of shelves, I finally heard what it was that he was saying,

"I'm the big brother, and my job is to protect you. And your job is to just love me back."

It was by far, one of the sweetest ways to end an otherwise somewhat challenging week—a reminder that love is all the matters.

"We love: that's why life is full of so many wonderful gifts." —Rumi
