Christmas Eve by Mary Morrissey

There was a group of children from the U.S. that were asked the question:

What is love?

These kids ranging from four to eight years old eagerly responded and these are their responses…

Rebecca, age 8: Well my grandmother got arthritis and she couldn’t bend over and paint her toenails anymore so my grandfather does it for her all the time now even though his hands got arthritis too. That’s love.

Micah, age 6: If you want to learn to love better you should start with a friend you hate.

Jessica, age 7: You really shouldn’t say I love you unless you mean it, but if you do mean it you should say it a lot because people forget.

And the last one…

Bobby, age 5: Love is what’s in the room with you at Christmas if you stop opening presents and just listen.

This season won’t you join me in preparing room in our hearts for a greater love?

Just listen to the love that surrounds you today…
