Love Is Story Excerpt:
“Then Mia asked, “How do you know if someone loves you? I know we say I love you. Are there other ways to know?”
Mia’s mom smiled and said, “If you watch and listen, you can see lots of ways.”
Mia sat up and asked, “How?”
Her mom responded, “People and animals show they care in lots of ways. Kids might invite you to play. A puppy or kitty might wait for you to walk in the door after school. You might see a cat feeding and snuggling with a little duckling along with all her kittens.”
Mia looked puzzled and asked, “A cat would take care of a different animal?”
Mia’s mom nodded. “Yes, that’s part of what makes it love. Doing something for someone, especially when you don’t have to, or when caring for them may even be difficult.”
Meditation Description: Feel your body fill with warmth and love as you send your loving energy to the world.
