A conspiracy of love.

Standard

 

Blessed is the season which engages the whole world in a conspiracy of love.
—Hamilton Wright Mabie (1846-1916)

Seems exactly what is needed right now. Let us all conspire – to show our love! It doesn’t need to be a gift (though it could be). It could be a smile or breezy “good morning”to one who looks harried, it could be going the extra mile to hear out someone who needs to talk, giving a lift to a flagging co-worker at the end of a tough day, complimenting someone who doesn’t get many compliments, fighting over the lunch bill, encouragement, the coin or two for a hot drink for the homeless (especially if you add “let me treat you.”)

There are so very many ways to show we care. We hear so much about conspiracies, secrets, deception etc. Let our conspiracy be of love, the special secret surprise, the scheming, brain stretching, compassion that leads to joy, not only to the recipient but to the giver.

I’ve been unearthing many wonderful conspiracies of late! How about you?
