Lovely Words : What Love Really Is

I found this post on Tumblr a long time ago and wrote it down. The real post has pictures of the written notes from the actual children. It’s one worth sharing…

4-8 Year Olds Describe Love

Rebecca, Age 8: 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.

Danny, Age 7: Love is when my mommy makes coffee for my daddy and she takes a sip before giving it to him, to make sure it tastes ok.

Terri, Age 4: Love is what makes you smile when you’re tired.

Nikka, Age 6: If you want to learn to love better, you should start with a friend who you hate.

Elaine, Age 5: Love is when mommy gives daddy the best piece of chicken.

Chris, Age 7: Love is when mommy sees daddy smelly and sweaty and still says he’s handsomer than Robert Radford.

Mary Ann, Age 4: Love is when your puppy licks your face even after you left him alone all day.

 

(I’m not sure why I put the picture of the dog, but he’s just so darn cute!!)

Happy Valentines Day!

Enjoy.

XO, A

Lovely Words: Gorgeously Human

IMG_9221

I found this post on Khloe Kardashian’s Instagram and had to repost it. It by far is one of my favourite pieces of writing. You are flawed and fabulous, you’re all gorgeously human.

“Dear Human: You’ve got it all wrong. You didn’t come here to master unconditional love. That is where you came from and where you will return. You came here to learn personal love. Universal love. Messy love. Sweaty love. Crazy love. Broken love. Whole love. Infused with divinity. Lived through the grace of stumbling. Demonstrated through the beauty of… messing up. Often. You didn’t come here to be perfect. You already are. You came here to be gorgeously human. Flawed and fabulous. And then to rise again into remembering.”

Enjoy.
