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 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 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 whom 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

"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

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

And the final one -- Author and lecturer Leo Buscaglia once talked
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, climbed onto his lap, and just sat there.

When his Mother asked what he had said to the neighbor, the little boy

"Nothing, I just helped him cry"


When there is nothing left but God, that is when you find out that God
is all you need. Take 60 seconds and give this a shot! All you do is
simply say the following small prayer for the person who sent you

Father, God bless all my friends in whatever it is that You know they
may be needing this day! And may their life be full of your peace,
prosperity and power as he/she seeks to have a closer relationship
you. Amen.
