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


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

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'
