Strew your day with love.

We all want love. We want to love and be loved. It’s a basic human need, to care and be cared for.

Often, we may think of love in terms of grand gestures. Lavish gifts, declarations of undying affection, special events with our children, friends, or beloved—all are ways we celebrate our love in large style.

But just as important and perhaps even more important, are the small ways we express love on a regular basis. Kind words, a soft glance, a favor given unasked, cooking someone’s favorite dish—all are ways we show we care on a lesser scale.

But all these little expressions of love add up. We generate an aura of sweetness and appreciation by caring in small ways on an ongoing basis.

Today’s message suggests I can improve my life and others’ lives as well by liberally offering acts that show I care. When I strew love around me, I am enveloped in it as well.

Please reflect and share. What minor expressions of love have you offered today?
