I asked my children what love meant, and both of them, at separate times, mad faces at me, and went “Yuck!”
Typical reactions for an 11 and 9-year-old! Love = boys/girls = kissing. Of course, that’s ‘yuck’ to them!
After a little more explanation, the best we came up with was this;
“There is family and romantic love. That’s it. When you care for someone.”
“Love is spending time with family, and friendship.”
Then my mum called me the other day. She has been having a proper clear out at my family home, and she found some cards, and letters that I had written to her and Pops, at a young age, around 7 or 8 I think. There was even a typed note! And they had lots about love for your parents within them, so I guess what I thought of some kind of love as a child. I thought they would be apt to share with you here!
The first picture says “I’ll never forget you. I will always love you mum.”
The second shows my Ritu and co trademark! Motherly Messages!
Inside was the following message.
To my dearest mummy
I love you mum
I love you so
In the mother’s competition
You’re the best in the row
But there’s one thing
I’d like to say
You’ll find love from me
Happy Mothers day
Put your feet up
Many kisses and even more love
From your best daughter
(It’s your special day not ours so rest yourself!)
See, a poet from a young age!
And then there was this one…
To the best parents ever,
The best advice comes from#When you are in dire need of advice, who does it come from. It comes from the best advice givers, your mummy and daddy.
This is something that I believe.
PS I would never wish for any other parents in my life as I love you both with the whole of my heart and I hope you also love me truly.
I LOVE YOU
Aw, the innocent love of children! Mind you I still feel this love for my dear parents! ❤
