What does love mean?

These are truisms that only kids can express. 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.

"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 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 5

"If you want to learn to love better, you should start with a
friend who 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

"During my piano recital, I was on a stage and 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 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
