Touching words from the mouth of children.

A group of researchers once 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


See what you think:

1. “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.” ~Sonia- age 8

2. “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

3. “Love is when you go out to eat and give somebody most of your French

fries without making them give you any of theirs.” ~Chintu – age 6

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

5. “Love is what’s in the room with you at Christmas if you stop opening presents and listen.” ~ Tina – age 7 (Wow!)

6. “Love is when you tell a guy you like his shirt, then he wears it every day.” ~Nargis – age 7

7. “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.” ~Gautam – age 8

8. “My mommy loves me more than anybody

You don’t see anyone else kissing me to sleep at night.” ~Suraj – age 6

9. “Love is when Mommy gives me the best piece of chicken.” ~Anita-age 5

10. “Love is when your puppy licks your face even after you left him alone

all day.” ~Varun – age 4

11. “I know my older sister loves me because she gives me all her old clothes and has to go out and buy new ones.” ~ Ananya – age 4

And the final one – Author and lecturer Leo Buscaglia once talked about a contest he was asked to judge.

The purpose of the contest was to find the most caring child.

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 neighbour, the little boy

said, “Nothing, I just helped him cry”

Love is magical, it’s a language the deaf can hear, a song the cripple can dance to, and a sunset the blind can see.

If we want love, we must try and realize that the only way to get love is by giving it, that the more you give, the more you will get and the only way you can give it is to try and fill yourself with it and become a magnet.

Fill yourselves with love, Spread Love & stay blessed forever.
