'What does love mean?'

 '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, deeper, and more profound than anyone could have ever 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 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 - âge 8
'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 Nikkas 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 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 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
'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.'
