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.
'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 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 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
'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
