What is love ...for a child.

What Love means to a 4-8 year old... 

Slow down to read this.

It is so worth it. 

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 

'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.' 

- 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 

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 

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 

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' 

When there is nothing left but 
God , that is when you find out that God is all 
you need. !

Heavenly Father , please bless all my 
friends in whatever it is that You know they may 
be needing this day! And may their life be full 
of Your peace , prosperity and power as he/she 
seeks to have a closer relationship with You. 
Amen .
