Subject: What love means......

What Love means to a 4-8 year old...

Slow down for three minutes to read this. It is so worth it.

Touching words from the mouth of babes..

A group of professional people posed this question

to a group of 4 to 8 year-olds ,

'What does love mean?'

The answers they got were broader and deeper

than anyone could have imagined

See what you think:

'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.'

Rebecca- age 8

'When someone loves you , the way they say

your name is different

You just know that your name is safe in their mouth.'

Billy - age 4

'Love is when a girl puts on perfume and

a boy puts on shaving cologne and they go out

and smell each other.'

Karl - age 5

'Love is when you go out to eat and give

somebody most of your French fries without

making them give you any of theirs.'

Chrissy - age 6

'Love is what makes you smile when you're tired.'

Terri - age 4

'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.'

Danny - age 7

'Love is when you kiss all the time. Then when

you get tired of kissing, you still want to be

together and you talk more. My Mom and

Daddy are like that. 

They look gross when they kiss'

Emily - age 8

'Love is what's in the room with you at

Christmas if you stop opening presents
and listen.'

Bobby - age 7 (Wow!)

'If you want to learn to love better, you should

start with a friend who you hate, '

Nikka - age 6
(we need a few million more Nikka's on this planet)

'Love is when you tell a guy you like

his shirt, then he wears it everyday.'

Noelle - age 7

'Love is like a little old woman and a little

old man who are still friends even after they know each other so well.'

Tommy - age 6

'During my piano recital, I was on a stage

and I was scared. I looked at all the people

watching me and saw my daddy waving

and smiling. 

He was the only one doing that. I wasn't

scared anymore.'

Cindy - age 8

'My mommy loves me more than anybody
You don't see anyone else kissing me to sleep at night.'

Clare - age 6

'Love is when Mom gives Daddy the best piece of chicken.'

Elaine-age 5

'Love is when Mom sees Daddy smelly

and sweaty and still says he is handsomer

than Robert Redford.'

Chris - age 7

'Love is when your puppy licks your face even

after you left him alone all day.'

Mary Ann - age 4

'I know my older sister loves me because she

gives me all her old clothes and has to go out

and buy new ones.'

Lauren - age 4

'When you love somebody, your eyelashes go up

and down and little stars come out of you.' (what an image)

Karen - age 7

'Love is when Mom sees Daddy on the toilet and

she doesn't think it's gross..'

Mark - age 6

'You really shouldn't say 'I love you' unless you

mean it. But if you mean it you should say

it a lot. People forget.'

Jessica - age 8
And the final one

The winner was 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'
