i remember when my son was 3 years old and he asked me what love is..i replied— love is doing everything for somebody to make that person happy, while doing that, you make sure that you dont hurt other people in the process..so his smart reply was ” hmm so you will buy me all the toys? that would really make me happy”
i looked at him and gave him a hug and said” you dont need all the toys”
he replied ” oh, but some kids… they do need it..i can go for no toys but with lots of hugs”
this conversation makes me cry and everytime i share this story, my friends always end up saying..ahhhhhh, that’s sweet..
