Question: WHAT IS THE GREATEST EXPERIENCE OF LOVE YOU’VE EVER HAD?
Transcript of Video:
I remember something very touching for me – and probably the greatest instance of love that I’ve ever experienced – was when my grandmother died. And I happened to be there with my mom and my aunt Mary who stayed by her bedside when hospice was called in. And here was the three wonderful women, who had very complex relationships at points in their lives. And right there, in that room, something happened … [long pause] … I saw my aunt Mary and my mom just hold her hand and tell her it was all going to be okay, they loved each other, that not to worry about them. And there was just this amazing wash of just – all of this junk that had happened over time just being released – and it was a very pure moment. And it made me realize that in relationships, where we get hurt by one another, it’s probably actually an indication that love is very, very strong, because you don’t let somebody – I don’t think you let somebody hurt you or you don’t let somebody in so close that you don’t love.
