That’s the Glory of Love

Ever had someone say something that reminds you of an old song? Then you can’t get the words (the ones you remember) out of your head. That happened to me last week. A sweet young woman was volunteering at our office. She was obviously handicapped but was so willing and eager to help. She overheard me say something about another volunteer – someone who goes far beyond the call of duty and always has a smile for our clients. This young woman, said “but that’s the glory of love”.

Her words stopped me cold. I forget that love is most often a verb and not a noun. Folks I know would be embarrassed to hear their actions be described as love, but it sure fits. Whether it’s answering a phone, greeting a client, schlepping boxes into pantries or sweeping the warehouse – it’s all the story of, and the glory of love.
