What Love Means

Post by retired2 on Wed May 06, 2015 7:58 pm

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

 


Slow down for three minutes to read this.


It is so worth it.


 


Touching words from the mouth of babes..


 

 

 

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 arthur-itis , 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 arthur -itis 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 - âge 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 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 I was scared. I looked at all the
people watching me and saw my mummy waving and
smiling.

 

She 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'
