Who will you love today?

We (the team at BIG) are just loving this poignant story from author Dr. Herbert O’Driscoll. Tells so much, so fast, so wewho will you love todayll, so softly.

‘When I was a child, my grandmother died and was buried in the churchyard in Castlecomer, Ireland. The following year I went there on holiday. One day we drove to visit relatives, I in the back seat with my grandfather.

As we passed the graveled driveway leading up to the churchyard, my grandfather, thinking he was unobserved, pressed his face against the window of the car and with a small, hidden motion of his hand, waved.

It was then I came to my first understanding of the majesty and vulnerability of love.”

Who will you let know today that you love them?
