"What does love mean?"

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
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.

"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 Mommy 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 ____

"If you want to learn to love better, you should start with a friend who you hate," Nikka - age 6 _____

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 Mommy gives Daddy the best piece of chicken." Elaine-age 5 _____

"Love is when Mommy sees Daddy smelly and sweaty and still says he
is handsomer than Brad Pitt 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." Karen - age 7 _____

"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 -- Author and lecturer Leo Buscaglia once talked
about a contest he was asked to judge. The purpose of the contest
was to find the most caring child. 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"

"Love is what makes you smile when you're tired." Terri - age 4

That is amazing that a four year old can even phantom that! This is the very epitome of love. To be able to recognize the very concept is astouding.

I love these, too. I've seen them many times, but there will never be enough times -- there is so much wisdom in them. I particularly like this one...

"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 ____

This one made my heart ache....it was so touching.
