Love can be pain but it can be sweet at the same time . What is love ? Love is what makes you smile when you're tired. Love is what can make you smile when you're crying.
People usually will ask adults , "what love means to you " and they will said how love is something you feel towards someone that you can't even describe it. But asking the same things to children really do open my eyes .
Rebecca, 8 years old girl , answer is "when my grandmother get arthritis,she couldn't bend over to paint her toenails anymore. So , my grandfather does it for her all the times,even when his hand got arthritis too. That's love." You can say that children are a good observant. They look at others and make a logic by themselves .
Danny, 7 years old boy gives a good answer saying " Love is when my mommy makes coffee for my daddy and takes a sip before giving it to him , to make sure it taste okay."His answer are so pure , her mom must be so proud of him. No, I'm not even trying to make love seem so easy , but then , the way you shows it to other especially children are simple . Just do it in simple way , they will know how people show their love towards each other.
If you ask adults, "Are they way people taste someone coffee before giving to them called love" they will answer no. Yes they will answer no . Because tasting it first beforehand can't define someone love . She maybe taste it so the taste will not makes the one who drinks get mad or anything. See the different?
From all the answer given , I love how matured this girl , Jessica , 8 years old kids , answer the question."You really shouldn't say i love you unless you mean it.But if you mean it, you really should say it a lot. Because people forget."
Thins answer of 8 years old kids somehow brought a deep feeling in my heart. How about you ? She telling you the truth . People tend to forget. So, we should remind them a lot . But some people say , we should not just depends on what people said because sometimes that i love you words just a words without meaning.
But what ironic is , when people really means it , they tend to only show their love using their body language not their words. And adults, because they keep thinking out of the box , they can't see that simple body language and need words to confirm it .
That how love works . If you think simple gesture is their way of showing you love, you will get misunderstanding. But if you think otherwise, you will not get the simple gesture at all . So , I'm asking again, what is love to you ?
