What Love Is

What is Love to you?
Peace, Happiness, God.. I'm not too sure how to describe it myself.
Reading children's answers to this same question does not only make me smile but reinforces the feeling that regardless of whether or not we know how to explain Love, we should always make sure we show it.
Although I don't really like commercialized side of Valentine's I enjoy seeing all the different creative ways people express their love and appreciation to the ones they care about. Regardless of whether you are in a romantic relationship or not, I think we should all celebrate Love.
I discovered this a while ago and thought what better time to share it than now.
Children's answer to the question "What is Love".

“Love is what makes you smile when you’re tired.”Terri – age 4

 “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


“My mommy loves me more than anybody.You don’t see anyone else kissing me to sleep at night.”Clare – age 6


“During my piano recital, I was on a stage and I was scared. I looked at all the people watching me and saw my daddy waving and smiling.He was the only one doing that. I wasn’t scared anymore.”Cindy – age 8


“Love is when Mommy gives Daddy the best piece of chicken.”Elaine-age 5

“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 you tell a guy you like his shirt, then he wears it everyday.” Noelle – age 7


“Love is when your puppy licks your face even after you left him alone all day.” Mary Ann – age 4


“I know my older sister loves me because she gives me all her old clothes and has to go out and buy new ones.” Lauren – age 4

“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.” Jessica – age 8



I hope you all have a wonderful Valentine's day and remember to keep this lovely spirit around for the rest of the year.

  5. Ooohhhh... that is so sweet, and so true! Children are always so sincere, and they really know that love is the everyday little or big things, that show the others that we love them, not only on Valentine's day, that is such a commercial time! Loved this post, to read the children's answers was really so good! Hope you have a very lovely day!

  7. I agree Children gives the best answer. I remember back home on Valentine's day I asked my little brother what love is and if he thinks I love him, he said yes I love him because I cook his food, wash after him and take him to school. My heart melted. I Also agree whether you're in a romantic relationship or not, love should be shown everyday to those around you. Thanks for sharing Sauniya.

  33. It is amazing how lil ones define and see love with the simplest of things and we(adults) show love with material things. Most expensive ones and forget to show love with the way we do things without complaining, just saying I love you without reservation or expectation. The kids' responses warmed my heart. How are you doing Sauniya?

  35. Dear Sauniya,
    when I look at my puppies, tears run out of my eyes, so much I love them. Only the thought that something could happen to them kills me. I don't love my family because they are easy or beautiful. I love them because they are who they are. With all facets.
    I wish you love from the bottom of my heart :-*
