Creative Love & Showing Up

April 14, 2020

Have you noticed in this time of uncertainty, the beautiful ways people are showing up for you?

From doorstep toilet paper deliveries,
To singing telegrams and porch dance lessons,
To the aunt dressed as the Easter bunny, making sweet drop offs.

People are showing up.
Again and again.
Over and over.

With creative love and joyful greetings.
With hurting hearts but hopeful messages.
With lonely spirits but eyes that sparkle with warmth and adoration.

If you’ve ever wondered who your people are, now you know.
These are your people.
The ones who show up through glass and doors and windows, still ready and excited to share their love for you.

The ones who refuse to let their love go stagnant or stale. The ones who’ve found ways to keep the love alive.

From Zoom calls, to FaceTime, to emails, texts and more.
From handmade cards, homemade signs and every other little sample of love.

These are your people.
This is your love.

It’s priceless and wonderful.
It’s solid and pure.
It’s creative and fun.

It’s the same love, just gifted differently.
Expressed from afar, but felt deep within our hearts.

The world is different.
So is love.

It has transformed.
It’s more visible than ever.

I hope when the world returns to normal, we keep this creative and vibrant love. I hope we keep showing up for people in new and adventurous ways.

I hope we keep loving our people as beautifully and as faithfully as we are right now.
