View Full Version : What is love?

Have a good weekend. :)

A group of professional people posed this question to a group of 4 to 8 year olds. "What does love mean?"

When my grandma got arthritis, she couldn't bend over and paint her toenails anymore. So my grandpa does it for her now 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 mouths.
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.
Kari- 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 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 (wow!)

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 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

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 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 winner was a 4 year old child whose next door neighbor was an elderly man who had just lost his wife. When the child saw the man cry, the little boy went over into the man's yard and climbed on top of the man's lap and just sat there. When the boy's mother asked him what he'd said to the neighbor, the little boy said, "Nothing, I just helped him cry."

Children always surprise you

am4rw, that's excellent! I am a sentimental kind, so it was very moving for me to read

i saw the title and immediately thought of the song by Deelite...However, upon reading it...:-(

Kids are so unjaded...Kind of makes me long for the days when innocence was not lost...

It was the last one that really got to me. Made me remember how lost my father was after my mom died.

I have just had one of my own, she is 5 days old and is the most gorgeous thing I have ever seen in my life. She makes me weak in my knees. I am a differenet person around her...She makes me so sentimental...The kids are the cure for every bad in this world!

If you want to learn to love better, you should start with a friend who you hate.
Nikka- age 6 - WOW!

Love is what's in the room with you at Christmas if you stop opening presents and listen.
Bobby- age 7 (wow!) - wow indeed! Philosophy? Not a a bit. They say what they really know and how they really feel. And that is the most wondrous thing!

Don't wanna close my eyes
Don't wanna fall asleep
'Cuz I'd miss you baby
And I don't wanna miss a thing
'Cuz even when I dream of you
The sweetest dream would never do
I'd still miss you baby
And I don't wanna miss a thing

I don't wanna miss one smile
I don't wanna miss one kiss
I just wanna be with you
Right here with you just like this
I just wanna hold you close
Feel your heart so close to mine
And just stay here in this moment for all the rest of time..
