- Rebecca, age 8: 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.
- Terri, age 4: Love is what makes you smile when you're tired.
- Danny, age 7: 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.
- Nikka, age 6: If you want to learn to love better, you should start with a friend who you hate.
- Elaine, age 5: Love is when Mommy gives Daddy the best piece of chicken.
- Chris, age 7: Love is when Mommy sees Daddy smelly and sweaty and still says he is handsomer than Robert Redford.
- Mary Ann, age 4: Love is when your puppy licks your face even after you left him alone all day.

I know that’s got to be really hard, going from seeing each other all the time to being hours away from each other. But you are still the same people, even when far away, and you can still enrich each other’s lives like you have before. Half the battle of an LDR is your own mentality. You have to be your own person and find enjoyment in your life while also supporting each other and sharing your feelings and passions as always. Communicate, spend time together as much as you can, always tell each other how you feel, and don’t let the fact you miss each other become this crushing burden that hurts you both. It doesn’t have to be that way at all.
The LDR community is also incredibly supportive, if you guys need any encouragement or advice, there are a lot of people here that will gladly help in any way possible :)
I understand =)
