Kids just say the darndest things, don’t they?

With their all-honesty say-it-as-it-is demeanor, kids have the ability to tug at our heartstrings, make us laugh out loud, and even get us really thinking about life.

We can never forget the great advice from this 9-year-old boy about the secret of life.

Or this great divorce advice from a 6-year-old which went viral.

And just the other day I came across this, and boy, did it melt my heart in so many ways:

What kids think about love.

So true and so simple.

It put a huge smile on my face, made me go “Awww” and some made me laugh out loud. It simply brightened my day, and reminded me to hug my husband a little tighter that day.
