Imagine you are running a race. A long race. And you’re exhausted. Almost spent. You aren’t sure you can even make it to the finish line. Can you feel your lungs burning, your legs turning to jello, your heart about to die?
And then you come around the last bend to see everyone you have ever known, everyone who has ever known you . . . jumping up and down, clapping, cheering for you. Some have tears streaming down their faces, others have their hands close to their hearts, but everyone is supporting you. Everyone is cheering for you. Everyone is sending you their love.
What happens to you?
You are transformed. You forget your pains. Your lungs find new air. Your body suddenly comes alive. And you race with pure joy and enthusiasm to the finish line.

That’s what love does. It propels us forward, breathes new life into us, gives us enthusiasm for living and a smile on our face. With love, we thrive.
You have the power to transform lives.
By simply loving.
