What is love? Here’s the answer from those who really know!

 We adults like to complicate things. Love is simple. Just ask a child. I received an email about children’s answers to the question, “what is love?”

Although I am suspicious of the authenticity of information passed over the internet, whether these are real kids with real answers, doesn’t really matter because the truth of the words shines through:

“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

“If you want to learn to love better, you should start with a friend who you hate,” Nikka – age 6

“Love is when you tell a guy you like his shirt, then he wears it everyday..” Noelle – 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 well.” Tommy – 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

“When you love somebody, your eyelashes go up and down and little stars come out of you.” 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
