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


"When my grandmother got arthritis, she couldn't bend over and paint her toenails

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."


- age 4 (Man this one is deep!)

"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


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


Bobby - age 7 (Wow and DOUBLE 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 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.

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

(We all need to think more like this!!!)

"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 -- Author and lecturer

Leo Buscaglia once talked about 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 said,

"Nothing, I just helped him cry."

:lovestruc I did shed a couple of tears.

Thank you Bel for this! I couldn't have enjoyed it

more than during this holiday season! ( and you can bet I will take even more time than normal to listen

while the others open their presents tomorrow)

I'll share something tonight.

My middle daughter is in the army and in Korea right now. We are all on the home computers with the cameras on and

she is on hers. Through the miracle of technology we had the pleasure of opening presents together this evening. I

can't tell you how much it means to all us, being able to be together even though one is half way around the world

from us.

Its the little things that really mean love, like being together on this special evening.


Christmas to one and all.

am glad you got to share the moment world wide.

The only credit I can take is

passing along something a friend sent me. Kids are great, you learn so much by listening to their innocent view of

the world.

Well, I guess one good thing about spam posts is it can bump up some of the good, old threads that could bear being seen by new audiences... and remind some of us "older" forum members about the "good old days..."

Yeah, nice thread, vintage 2006.

Today I caught myself smiling for no reason... then I realized I was thinking about you.

This is the power of love.

I never know that this thread can touch my heart than ever before.
Amazing and great post that can really help us to realize the deep meaning of love.
By the way, I'm a big fan of Jimi Hendrix too, I really like his playing in guitar.
