Slow down for three minutes to read this. It is so worth it. Take a little time out of your busy week to just think about it. Touching words from the mouth of babes.
A group of professional people posed this question to a group of 4 to 8 year-olds, ‘What does love mean?’ The answers they got were broader and deeper than anyone could have imagined.
See what you think.
“When my grandmother got arthritis, she couldn’t bend over and paint her toenails anymore. So my grandfather does it for her all the time, even when his hands got arthritis too. That’s love.”
Rebecca- age 8
“When someone loves you, the way they say your name is different.
You just know that your name is safe in their mouth.”
Billy – age 4
“Love is when a girl puts on perfume and a boy puts on shaving cologne
and they go out and smell each other.”
Karl – age 5
“Love is when you go out to eat and give somebody
most of your French fries without making them give you any of theirs.”
Chrissy – age 6
“Love is what makes you smile when you’re tired.”
Terri – age 4
“Love is when my mommy makes coffee for my daddy and she takes a sip before giving it to him, to make sure the taste is OK.”
Danny – age 7
And my very own personal favorite.
“Grandma, when we all get to heaven, is Grandpa still going to smell that way?”
Lauren – age 7
It is my sincere profound hope that each of you have a great day today and a better one tomorrow.
