Yesterday, a neighbor shared that her Irish grandmother often said, “Like things, love people.” What a wonderful saying! I try to live this out in how I manage our home. We don’t want to let things get in the way of loving people!
Love sees people and life honestly, and engages in constructive and beautiful ways that make a difference. This difference impacts both the people living out of love, and all the people their lives touch.
I use the word “beauty” broadly, to include interactions, kind gestures, thoughtful details and plans, details that combine to create an hour or day … any sort of thing we can do in a creative and beautiful way! Our choices to pursue beauty and goodness make all the difference in who we become and how we live out our days.
