For everything there is a sign

Tonight on my way to Tae Kwon Do practice I got a call from my 6 year old daughter asking me a simple yet profound question about love.  The conversation was deep, touching, heart rendering. I felt so grateful that my dear Sofia was calling me to ask my side of the story on such important questions that I consider this call to be indeed a sign of her love for me. The main conclusion of our conversation was that both Sofia and her sister Juliet are loved by both their parents. As I was talking to Sofia in my attempt to comfort her — for at some point she got saddened — my eyes filled with tears, my voice cracked… and then I did what I felt was the most appropriate and genuine response: I invited her to join me in singing a song.

As we both belted our voices over the phone, we sang until our spirits were uplifted and I personally could sense that she was in my heart’s embrace even though she was physically away from me.  The song we sang was our own rendition of “Sign of Love”, from SKY‘s brilliant CD “A Cycle of Divine Love Songs“:

O SON OF MAN!
For everything there is a sign. The sign of love is fortitude under My decree and patience under My trials.
(Baha’u’llah, The Arabic Hidden Words, #48)
