Monday Musings: Where will you find love?

27 Jan
Where will you find love over the next few weeks?

Where will you find love?

I found a great social media project on Facebook this weekend and it made an impact on me, so I thought I’d share it with you.

It’s the Find the Love project on Facebook and it was started by a mother who lost her daughter three years ago, just 21 days after giving birth to her. With the three-year anniversary of her daughter Sofia’s birthday this week, mom Lori has put out a challenge to the world: Find the Love in every day.

Sofia Dente didn’t live long…only 3 weeks. But in that time she ignited a love unlike no other.

In honor and celebration of the 21 days Sofie was with us on this Earth, we are launching her “Find the Love” Project.
This 21 day photo project will encourage all of us to take a moment each day to focus and find the love that is so abundantly around us.
Sofie was able to teach and inspire so many to find love in the darkest and most difficult days. It’s so easy for all of us to go about or daily lives and miss beautiful examples of love. For 21 days, to honor her sweet life, join us in sharing photos that inspire love to you,” Lori wrote on the Find the Love Facebook page.

During the weekend I started seeing #FindtheLove posts coming through my timeline and with my curiosity piqued, I had to check out the page. I’m so glad I did.

Lori’s page serves as a reminder not only to take the time to reflect each day on something wonderful, something that means love to you, but to me it also served as a reminder to take the time to appreciate the things we have for as long as we have them. Lori’s story is a tragic one, but she’s turning her daughter’s legacy into one of love and she’s honoring her by reminding the world to count their blessings every day.

I encourage you to participate in the Find the Love project too, even if you only do it yourself, without posting photos on her page. Take a minute every day to find something that makes you stop and take a minute. And if you have a chance, take a look at the Find the Love page and enjoy all of the great photos that have been posted.

It’s a great feeling, reminiscent of the 30 days of Gratitude project which takes place each Thanksgiving.

We need more feel-good projects in our world and the Find the Love project is just that.
