WHAT IS LOVE?





My friend Shirley emailed me this.  Thank you, Shirley!!

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

 
Slow down for three minutes to read this.



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 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 8
 

'Love is what's in the room with
you at Christmas if you stop opening presents
and just 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 every day.'
 
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 

'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 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 
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'

Take 60 seconds and
Send this on to five other people.

P. S.
Five is good, but more is
  better..
Bless You!
She sent me this, too:


An elderly couple had just learned how to send text messages on their mobile phones. The wife was a romantic type and the husband was more of a no-nonsense guy. One afternoon the wife went out to meet a friend for coffee. She decided to send her husband a romantic text message and she wrote:

"If you are sleeping, send me your dreams. If you are laughing, send me your smile. If you are eating, send me a bite. If you are drinking, send me a sip. If you are crying, send me your tears.  I love you."

The husband texted back to her:

"I'm on the toilet. Please advise."

I sent this to my husband:
