     Strong demanding love is loving everyone no exception. It is loving those who are challenging to love. It is loving those who hate, those who fear. It is loving ourselves as well; even the bits that we may feel are unloveable. I have felt this type of love several times and it brings my heart to almost bursting. I have felt it when sharing Free Hugs with homeless or with strangers on street corners. I have felt it when in a hospital in Kenya sitting with a dying child, my hand gently on her back rubbing small circles as I whispered a quiet story to her and tried to take some of her pain away. I have felt this love when speaking to my brother and mother with whom I have a challenging relationship due to their own fears and negativity; sometimes I can see beyond that into their hearts and see the wounds they are carrying. A practical test for me is reminding myself that we are all Tall Children and would I say or think what I'm carrying to a small child? It helps me to see the human being in front of me. Here's to love, may it always win.
