var formControls = document.querySelectorAll('.wpcf7 .form-control');

for (var i = 0; i < formControls.length; i++) {
var input = formControls[i];
var label = input.parentNode.parentNode.querySelector('label');

input.addEventListener('focus', function() {

input.addEventListener('blur', function() {
var cval = this.value;
if (cval.length < 1) {

if (label) {
label.addEventListener('click', function() {
var input = this.parentNode.querySelector('.form-control');
