That’s love

Kids have a wonderful capacity for recognizing what’s real. Here’s what some of them say about love: ‘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.’ Another said, ‘Love is when my Mum makes coffee for my Dad and she takes a sip before giving it to him, to make sure the taste is okay.’ One little girl said, ‘Love is what’s in the room with you at Christmas if you stop opening presents and listen.’ Another said, ‘You really shouldn’t say “I love you” unless you mean it. But if you mean it, you should say it a lot, because people forget.’
The wisdom of children reminds us of the most profound spiritual truth of all; that ‘God is love.’
