In "other" Words - Love

What is love, from a kid’s point of view?
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.

When someone loves you, the way they say your name is different. You know that your name is safe in their mouth.

Love is when someone hurts you, and you get so mad, but you don’t yell at them because you know it would hurt their feelings.

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 okay.

Love is what’s in the room with you at Christmas if you stop opening presents and listen.

Love is like a little old woman and a little old man who are still friends even after they know each other so well.

Love is when Mommy sees Daddy smelly and sweaty and still says he is handsomer than Robert Redford.

Love is when your puppy licks your face even after you left him alone all day.

You really shouldn’t say "I love you" unless you mean it. But if you mean it, you should say it a lot. People forget.

These are so precious!

Blessings and love to you today!


  1. I like your illustrations of what love is. The first one made me think of my parents and their demonstration of what love is. Especially when my mom had a major stroke and dad took on a role he wasn't sure he could fill but he did because of, what else...his love for her. Thanks.

  2. I love your list. It's worthy of a spot under a refrigerator magnet!
    My hope is to experience AND practice this kind of unconditional love in my life.
    Happy IOW Tuesday!
