Kid’s Love…

by Fr Duncan McVicar on 16/07/2013 -

A group of professional 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 imagined. See what you think: ”When my grandmother got arthritis, she couldn’t bend over and paint her toenails anymore. My grandfather does it for her all the time, even after his hands got arthritis too. That’s love.” Rebecca – age “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 my mummy makes coffee for my daddy and she takes a sip before giving it to him to make sure the taste is okay.” Danny – age 7 “Love is what’s in the room with you at Christmas if you stop opening presents and listen.” Bobby – age  “If you want to learn to love better, you should start with a friend who you hate.” Nikka – age 6 “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 “During my piano recital, I was on a stage and 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.” Cindy – age 8 “My mummy loves me more than anybody. You don’t see anyone else kissing me to sleep at night.” Clare – Age 6 “Love is when mummy gives daddy the best piece of chicken.” Elaine – age 6 “Love is when mummy sees daddy smelly and sweaty and still says he is handsomer than Robert Redford.” Chris – age  “Love is when your puppy licks your face even after you left him alone all day.” Mary Ann – age 7 “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 “I let my big sister pick on me because my mum says she only picks on me because she loves me. So I pick on my baby sister because I love her.” Bethany – age 4 “When you love somebody, your eyelashes go up and down and little stars come out of you.” 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
