Wisdom From Little Children About Love

Tomorrow is my 39th wedding anniversairy. I started to think about love and came across this really cute list of comments  from a group of little children when asked, "what is love? " If you are looking for something to uplift your spirit, read the advice from a group of 4-8 year olds. Their answers were broader and deeper than anyone could have imagined.

                                          CHILDREN'S PERSPECTIVE ON LOVE





_____________________'What is Love?'


__________________________________________________________

'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
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
'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 an old woman and an 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.  That is love
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 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
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

'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'
