Love is......


"What does love mean?"

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 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 what's in the room with you at Christmas if you stop 
opening presents and listen."
Bobby - age 5

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

"There are two kinds of love. Our love. God's love.
But God makes both kinds of them."
Jenny - age 4

"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

"My mommy loves me more than anybody. You don't see anyone else 
kissing me to sleep at night."
Clare - Age 5

"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 Robert Redford."
Chris - age 8

"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

"I let my big sister pick on me because my Mom says she only 
picks on me because she loves me. So I pick on my baby sister 
because I love her."
Bethany - age 4

"When you love somebody, your eyelashes go up and down and 
little stars come out of you."
Karen - age 7

"Love is when mommy 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
