What does love mean? (Part 1 of 2)February 7, 2013
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
"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 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 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 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 6
