Defining Love

Okay, this one got to me.

From Cara Putman's Blog The Law, Books and Life

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'

Hat tip Timothy Fish.

That was my favorite from the list too. I really wish I knew who wrote it originally because it is beautiful. How often we just need someone to help us cry.
