Been itching to write something, anything in here… when I got these emails from a couple of younger friends who send me nice ones regularly and I thought why not? I am sure many of you have read these firsthand but still for them who haven’t, couldn’t help sharing, and documenting (for myself). And for those who know these already, they are worth reading again! Enjoy! 🙂
*What is Love???*
A group of 4 to 8 year-old Children were asked, “What does love mean?”
The answers they gave were broader and deeper than anyone could have imagined.
–”Love is when you tell a guy you like his shirt, then he wears it everyday” (Tina – age 7)
–”My mommy loves me more than anybody. You don’t see anyone else kissing me to sleep at night.” (Clare – Age 5)
–”When someone loves you, the way they say your name is different. You know that your name is safe in their mouth.” (Billy – 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)
–”Love is when you go out to eat and give somebody most of your French fries without making them give you any of theirs..” ( Chris sy – age 6)
–”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 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 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. That’s love” (Cindy -age 8)
–”Love is when mommy gives daddy the best piece of chicken.” (Elaine – age 5)
–”Love is when your puppy licks your face even after you left him alone all day.” (Mary Ann – age 4)
Why should the wedding ring be worn on the fourth finger?
There is a beautiful and convincing explanation given by the Chinese Legend…
Thumb represents your Parents
Second (Index) finger represents your Siblings
Middle finger represents your-Self
Fourth (Ring) finger represents your Life Partner
& the Last (Little) finger represents your children
Firstly, open your palms (face to face), bend the middle fingers and hold them together – back to back
Secondly, open and hold the remaining three fingers and the thumb – tip to tip
(As shown in the figure below):
Now, try to separate your thumbs (representing the parents)…, they will open, because your parents are not destined to live with you lifelong, and have to leave you sooner or later.
Please join your thumbs as before and separate your Index fingers (representing siblings)…., they will also open, because your brothers and sisterswill have their own families and will have to lead their own separate lives.
Now join the Index fingers and separate your Little fingers (representing your children)…., they will open too, because the children also will get married and settle down on their own some day.
Finally, join your Little fingers, and try to separate your Ring fingers (representing your spouse).
You will be surprised to see that you just CANNOT….., because Husband & Wife have to remain together all their lives – through thick and thin!!
Do try this out…………. Isn’t it a lovely theory?
And still another:
There were bound to be some advantages!
Hope you had fun! Loads and loads of it! Love, G.:)
