Slow down for three minutes to read this. It is so worth it.
Touching words from the mouths of babes.
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 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."

Chrissie - age 6

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

Terri - age 4

"Love is when my mummy makes coffee for my daddy and she
takes a sip before giving it to him, to make sure the taste is

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 (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
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 doing that. I wasn't scared

Cindy - age 8

"My mummy loves me more than anybody, you
don't see anyone else kissing me to sleep at

Clare - age 6

''Love is when Mummy gives Daddy the best piece of chicken.''
Elaine-age 5

"Love is when Mummy 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 Mummy 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 -- 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, 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

When there is nothing left, that is when you find out that love is
all you need.
