What is Love : Ask me....

We get very depressed.. ..We seek consolation from different specialists,we turn to junk food, we try motivational movies and the last resort we turn to is the bottle or worse the ARV laced spirits. Just to seek one feeling..FEEL LOVED.. All manner of self gratifications that humans engage in have all been proved to be in self pursuit of Love. Love in the home, workplace, family or from your friends. Reminds me, the best selling movies have always been ebbed on Love. Look at the the Titanic, the Love story that became a tragedy. Thinking of my favourite musicians,no matter how hardcore they are they try to be they always spare a song here and there for Love.
Walking on the streets of Thika, I cant help but amaze at those who wait and directly benefit from Love. There are love birds strewn on the lawns of Christina Wangari gardens (reminds I need to tell you about the origin of this garden). There are children playing under the watchful eye of their parents, the kids being as a result of a certain love tale between mum and dad. There is area near Macvast hotel where they sell red roses and they are a real gem in this part of town. I was talking to this nice friend of mine who is thinking of opening a chocolate shop to reap the universal benefits that come with people falling in love.

You are wondering what hit me today..It aint valentine but I was thinking about the people who yearn for Love but never get it. Maybe some feel they don't deserve it, they are too downtrodden for anyone to give them love..or we don't even realize they need it. Thika Town and the Thika environs has numerous groups of people who we need to share Love with. Love is one critical part of life. Its the same line with oxygen.  Many of us believe that Love just happens,that is the biggest lie. Love is given out and shared without expecting anything in return.
 I will just give you areas in Thika where your Love is needed and where it would change lives. When you put a smile in someone life, the radiance in their face will also shine in your heart. There is this kid I visited at the Joy-town School for the Physically Handicapped, friends,this was a heart warming experience. To see these 5 to 10 year olds smiling and playing with me was heartwarming, mind you these kids were limbless and with weak hands that can't hold anything. The smile in their faces betraying this incapacitation. Just a few hours with these kids will show you the power of love.
 
Due to the pop culture brought by westernization, the concept of love has been changed. Nowadays many people believe Love has to be in form of a gift or something that involves money or some items. Long gone are the days that we could visit our friends, grandparents or families with nothing but still get unlimited love from them. The next weekend you visit your mum,small sister or girlfriend, try going empty handed.. Am sure there will be a broken heart somewhere. Thats the main reason why we constantly deny our friends, families, neighbors or fellow Kenyans Love because we believe we don't have the financial glue to hold the Love..Inconsequential..Just get out of your way, make a hearty call to your old friend, just visit the bedridden neighbor and when your are financial affairs are sorted, you will definitely buy them that gift. For now just show them Love,its priceless, but it can change a life.
 
I later met this Joy-town kids during a public holiday celebration at the Thika National stadium. This time there were some rehabilitated street kids, students from the Thika School for the Blind and others from some Children Homes in Thika. Love was shared every time the children went to the dais to entertain the guests and this gave many the priceless chance to share and interact with these lovely angels.

Every time you meet a depressed person, know one thing for fact, Love has been denied somewhere. Every time you get a smile on the street, smile back for someone is sharing the love is in their hearts. Take the love wholeheartedly, for you never know when you will need it.
Have a lovely Evening
