Can you say "I love you" any better?

Received an email from a friend that i had to share.

What Love means to a 4-8 year old. . Slow down for three minutes to read this. It is so worth it;touching words from the mouth of babes.

A group of professional people posed this question o a group of 4 to 8 year-olds, 'What does love mean?'

The answers they got were broader and deeper than anyone could have imagined. See what you think:

'Love is what makes you smile when you're tired.' Terri - age 4

'Love is when my mommy makes coffee for my daddy and she takes a sip before giving it to him,to make sure the taste is OK.' Danny - age 7

'Love is when you kiss all the time. Then when you get tired of kissing,you still want to be together and you talk more. My Mommy and Daddy are like that.They look gross when they kiss. Emily - age 8

'Love is what's in the room with you at Christmas if you stop opening presents and listen.'Bobby - age 7 (Wow!)

'If you want to learn to love better, you should start with a friend, who you hate,'
Nikka - age 6 (We need a few million more Nikka's on this planet)

'Love is when you tell a guy you like his shirt,& then he wears it everyday.’
Noelle -age 7

'Love is like a little old woman and a little old man who are still friends,even after they know each other so well.' Tommy - 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

'My mommy loves me more than anybody.You don't see anyone else kissing me to sleep at night.'
Clare - age 6

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

'Love is when Mommy sees Daddy smelly and sweaty and still says he is handsomer than Robert Redford.' Chris - 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

'When you love somebody, your eyelashes go up and down and little stars come out of you.'(What an image)Karen - age 7

'Love is when Mommy sees Daddy on the toilet and she doesn't think it's gross.'
Mark - age 6

'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

And the final one -- Author and lecturer Leo Buscaglia once talked about a contest he was asked to judge. The purpose of the contest was to find the most caring child.
The winner was a four year old child whose next door neighbor was an elderly gentleman who had recently lost his wife. Upon seeing the man cry, the little boy went into the old gentleman's yard,climbed onto his lap, and just sat there. When his Mother asked what he had said to the neighbor,the little boy said, 
'Nothing, I just helped him cry'

Noah's Ark

I received this an email. Since i really like it thought i would share with all of you!
Noah's Ark :  Everything I need to know, I learned from Noah's Ark .

1:  Don't miss the boat.
2:  Remember that we are all in the same boat!
3:  Plan ahead.  It wasn't raining when Noah built the Ark.
4:  Stay fit.  When you're 60 years old, someone may ask you to do something really big.
5:  Don't listen to critics; just get on with the job that needs to be done.
6:  Build your future on high ground.
7:  For safety's sake, travel in pairs.
8:  Speed isn't always an advantage.  The snails were on board with the cheetahs.
9:  When you're stressed, float awhile.
10:  Remember, the Ark was built by amateurs; the Titanic by professionals.
11:  No matter the storm, when you are with God, there's always a rainbow waiting.

Tonight i promise to sit down and get those links to the wreaths!

Memorial Day

In Flanders Fields
In Flanders fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row,
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.

We are the Dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved and were loved, and now we lie
In Flanders fields.
~Written by John McCrae~

Thank you to all our veterans and to all that still serve!
Are you looking for something crafty to do? 
has posted some great ideas!
