Pass Around Love

NYC.  Our hearts ache again.

A few weeks ago I heard a child say that kids were “passing around anger” to each other.  They said that one person pushed this person, than the next person pulled at the next person and it continued down the line, child after child, one “passing anger” to the next. 

Passing around anger.  

It made me think of us adults and how much anger gets passed around in this world by us.  When we have a bad day, do we work through those emotions or pass it along to our loved ones or strangers? When anger and frustration grip us, do we try to defuse it or call a person who will help fuel the fire?

Passing around anger.

Is that what we want to be doing?  Is that the example we want to set for our children, our nieces, nephews, our grandchildren, etc.?

Not me.  Yet I admittedly have done it.

Today, I invite you to join me to…

Pause. Breathe. Pray.

Let’s make a commitment to ourselves, and to the children in our lives, and in this world, to let the anger stop with us.  When we get angry or frustrated, let’s figure out a way to let it go and in its place choose to live out love.

We see where anger leads.  

Let’s see where love will take us, and our children.

With love and hope,

Shawn
