Dear Little One,
I’ve been thinking a lot about love lately. There are so many kinds.
Love for the senses: things you love to taste or smell or hear or feel or see.
Love for the brain: things you love to learn about, explore, understand, and invent.
Love for the body: things you do to feel calm or alive or dangerous or happy.
Love for the earth: things that you love to be around, be it outside or inside, underwater or in the air.
Love for the heart: things you will live and breathe and sacrifice and die for.
There’s love between friends and girlfriends and boyfriends and husbands and wives and daughters and fathers and sons and mothers and daughters. There’s self-based love and faith based love. There is tangible love and intangible love.
What’s comforting about all this is that, quite simply, there is love. And no matter where you are in your life, you will have it. It will be around you, it will be inside you, it will be you, even when that seems impossible to believe. So don’t lose hope, Little One, love is always there.
See you soon
