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

    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 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

    '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 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 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
    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'

    Rebecca atafika mbali saana… at age 8 tayari anajua anaempenda jina linatoka tofauti… She is a Romantic at heart…. I am not Surprised at Billy – yaani a typical guy and only 4, thinking ahead (Sex); Bobby a person with a Great heart full of Love and understanding ambayo sometimes hata mtu mzima hata…. I feel for Cindy, her world is centred only around her.. she sees nothing else…. Mary Ann… mmmh!

    Nimezipenda…. Very interesting….
