Love is spikes and lumpy bits

My wife was recently given the honour of speaking at a really close friend’s wedding.  One problem – we couldn’t go.  There were tears, negotiations and in the end a brilliant solution.  Let’s put pen to paper and then get someone to read it on our behalf.

After a few more negotiations, and with our sons help, I wrote this for them.

If you Google the word Love you will end up with roughly 7 and a half Billion search results.  Some of the results are deeply inspiring, some are motivating, some involve religion and so on. In fact, it is impossible to put into words what love truly is

What is possible to do is to ask a 7 year old what he thinks love is.

Love is when people join together

Love is having friendship

Love is being kind to people

Love is People respecting each other.

Love is also two spikes with lumps on top.

This is Love in the mind of a 7 year old boy.  Deep, meaningful and all about people being together.

There is a famous quote that goes “People will not remember what you say, People will not remember how you said it.  What people will remember is how you made them feel.”

(We got the speaker to turn to audience) Can you all please hold your hands up in the air and with your thumbs make two spikes and with the rest of our hands make two lumps on Top.

You both epitimise Love.  You join people together.  You are amazing friends.  You are always Kind and respectful.

Thank you both for your love of each other and of us for now and forever.
