Story Begins: 10:07
Love is… Excerpt:
Mia’s mom gently guided the fluffy blanket from the foot of Mia’s bed up to Mia’s chin. With a smile she kissed Mia on the forehead and said, “Love you” as she stood up to leave the room.
“Love you too mom.” Mia responded from her cozy blanket cocoon. Then she asked, “Mom? What is love? We say I love you all the time. What does it mean?”
Mia’s mom stopped and sat back down. This was an important question. She asked Mia, “Well, what do you think love is?”
Mia thought a moment and answered, “I think love is when you care about another person a lot.”
“I think you’re right.” Mia’s mom replied.
Today’s Meditation: Feel your body fill with warmth and love as you send your loving energy to the world.
