“I would love to start a movement of people starting to SHOW each other that they love them. Love is not what you say. Love is what you show.”

I read a quote the other day that really resonated with me. It was “Love is not what you say. Love is what you show.” I would love to start a movement of people starting to SHOW each other that they love them. There is too much hate in the world. Words are easy to say and nice to hear, but actions always speak louder than words. Do something nice for someone everyday. It doesn’t matter if it’s a little thing or a big thing. Oftentimes it’s the little things that occupy the biggest part of their hearts anyway. A few years ago I was sitting on the stoop of a building on 44th Street and 9th Avenue, crying after an upsetting phone call I had just had. My head was down and I was wiping my eyes. All of a sudden this hand popped up in front me holding an amethyst rock. When I finally looked up, this very kind looking young man, probably about the age of 25, was standing there. He said to me… “I overheard your conversation and it seems to me that you are in a lot of pain. I have this amethyst and I carry it with me wherever I go. It is supposed to help with healing and light and right now it is clear to me that you can use it more than I can, Please take it.” I slowly took it out of his hand and stared at it. By the time I looked up to thank him, he was gone. I wish I could tell him how much that little gesture meant to me. I wish I could tell him how it not only brought a smile to my face, but how it, in one second, restored my faith in humanity. I wish I could tell him after all these years, I’m so thankful that he stopped to help a distressed stranger on the street because it meant a lot… and I wish I could tell him that I carry that stone wherever I go, because I do.
