What Does Love Mean?

I came across a website that had children describing what 'love' is. It was entirely too adorable not to share. Since I am in the mood for fall (the clothes, the leaves changing, and the yummy food) I decided to make this the fall edition of my Rainy Day Romance post.

When children speak their minds it is always so pure, thoughtful, and oddly enough.. romantic. They have never actually witnessed love (beyond their family) yet, they know how describe it better than anyone else. When you ask a lot of people who claim to be 'in love' to describe it or to tell you what it feels like or what it means, 90% of the time they aren't able to.

Here, children do it for you. Do you agree or disagree? Which is your favorite

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.

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 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

Love is when you tell a guy you like his shirt, then he wears it everyday.
Noelle – age 7

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

All together now.. *Awwww!!!*

Yeah, I know, SO beyond cute.

Can you describe what you think love is?
 I've heard it described as:
"That can't eat, can't sleep, reach for the stars, over the fence, world series kinda stuff."
-It Takes Two

Sounds good to me.

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.
