Love byte # 25 - Through a Child's Eyes

You might have read this somewhere , even if you have i suggest you grab that chair , lean forward and slow down for a few minutes .. and take your time to read this..

A group of professionals posed this question to a group of 4-8 year olds , " What does love mean ? " .. The answers they got were broader and deeper than anyone could have imagined .. See what you think..

'When 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 - 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 when you tell a guy you like his shirt , then he wears it everyday.'
Noelle - age 7

'Love is whats in the room with you at Christmas if you stop opening presents and listen.'
Bobby - age 7 ( wow !! )

'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

'Love is when Mommy gives Daddy the best piece of chicken.'
Elaine - age 5

'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 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.'
Karen - age 7 ( what an image !! )

'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 neighbour 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 . "
