This is what love is really about.

This is what love is really about. Helping others. Smiling. Connecting. Being unselfish. Having a purpose larger than oneself.
What is love? Compassion.

Serving others. Expressing true compassion with more than words: with actual deeds. Having a purpose that is larger than oneself.

I know quite a few people who are fundamentally unhappy. Of course, they are all self-centered.

Perhaps they should look beyond their own nose and think of others.

Here are some photographic examples of true love. These and hundreds of other unselfish volunteers gladly took to the streets of San Diego this morning to collect donations for Ronald McDonald House.

Ronald McDonald House offers families a place to stay near specialized hospitals where young children are battling life-threatening illnesses. Every year, about 1,400 families, who are undergoing unspeakable stress and worry, and possibly financial hardship, are freely given a place to stay and good meals to eat. Now that is love.

It’s too late this year to roll down your car window and drop some money into a big red shoe. But you can donate online here!

The happiest people alive are the least selfish. Look at the genuine smiles. What more needs to be said.

Money collected by this wonderful lady will provide families with a comforting place to stay while children who suffer from life-threatening illnesses are treated at a nearby hospital.
