What does Love mean ....???

A group of 4 to 8 year-olds was asked, "What does love mean?"

The answers they gave were broader and deeper than anyone could have

--"My mommy loves me more than anybody. You don't see anyone else
kissing me to sleep at night." (Clare - Age 5)

--"When someone loves you, the way they say your name is different. You
know that your name is safe in their mouth." (Billy - age 4)

--"During my swimming sessions, I was inside water, with eyes closed and
scared. I heard my friend's voice saying don't worry, Everything is
fine. I will not let anything happen to you. I wasn't scared anymore.
That's love "
(Cindy -age 8)

--"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 )

--"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 all alone." (Terri - age 4)

--"Love is when you tell a girl you like her dress, then she wears it
more oftenly" (David - age 7)

--"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 - age7)

--"Love is when mommy gives daddy the best piece of chicken." (Elaine -
age 5)

--"Love is when your puppy licks your face even after you left him alone
all day." (Mary Ann - age 4 )

Kids are most clear and simplified in their thoughts, know what people say they are inspired by so and so person but its best to get inspired in real terms from kids truly we all are so grown ups that we hardly have time and energy to look and understand the simple concepts of our own feelings... we add tough words more vocab we call it impressive but they all are lifeless ... see these kids so simply and wo wonderfully have they explained what LIFE and LOVE is all about :) thats their innocense...

So if this Valentine's Day you want to tell someone how much you Love him/her be simple and honest that touch's heart more than any other thing :)

Honesty Still works Atleast in the World of LOVE :) .....
So count your Blessings and Go on hunt to Know What Love means :)

Adios :)

Defining love is enclosing a wilderness of ideas within wall of words.
The flowery and sophisticated words are just enclosing. I don't know what love is. I can only feel it. I can feel it when I am sleeping in my mothers lap.

"Love is a temporary madness. It erupts like an earthquake and then subsides. And when it subsides you have to make a decision. You have to work out whether your roots have become so entwined together that it is inconceivable that you should ever part. Because this is what love is. Love is not breathlessness, it is not excitement, it is not the promulgation of promises of eternal passion. That is just being "in love" which any of us can convince ourselves we are. Love itself is what is left over when being in love has burned away, and this is both an art and a fortunate accident. Your mother and I had it, we had roots that grew towards each other underground, and when all the pretty blossom had fallen from our branches we found that we were one tree and not two."

-- Captain Corelli's Mandolin
