tumblr_m7ing4inC61rbhumlo1_500What is Love? This question was posed to a group of 4 to 8 year olds… I just came across this and found the answers fascinating…

‘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 what makes you smile when you’re tired.’ .Terri – age 4

‘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

‘If you want to learn to love better, you should start with a friend who you hate,’.Nikka – age 6

‘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

‘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.’ Karen – age 7

‘Love is when Mommy sees Daddy on the toilet and she doesn’t think it’s gross.’.Mark – age 6

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’
