Gestures of love

by Fr. Jeff

From the recliner I could see my 4-year-old niece on the sofa trying to make a symbol with her hand and waving it wildly.

Puzzled, I looked to my left to see at whom she was waving. Mom was peering through the kitchen making a gesture with three fingers.

Mom asked her, “Do you know what it means?”

Ella shook her head yes and tried to wave the gesture in return. After a few seconds, she put her hand down and shouted across the living room

I love you too!

Teach me to share Ella’s enthusiasm as You form my hands to be

Gestures of love.
