“I have decided to stick with love. Hate is too great a burden to bear.” –Martin Luther King, Jr.
One of the greatest gifts ever given is LOVE. No matter how many gifts we purchase, create, or wrap… the one element that makes it all special for those we choose to gift, is the love that accompanies our present. The important people in our lives appreciate that we think of them and are not afraid to show them just how much we love them.
The least expensive gift in the world is the most valued. It will always require letting go a little piece of yourself and adding a dash of what makes you special in the world. Wise Moms choose to love and care themselves first rather than carry the burden that resentment and hate brings. This year resolve to stick with love and run from the burden hate brings. Love yourself first so you can fill up with love needed to continuously give to those you love and even to those who may stand in need of it. Whenever you feel challenged in loving yourself or another remember Dr. King’s words and say it aloud, “I have decided to stick with love. Hate is too great a burden to bear.”
