Final thoughts on love.

A group of children were asked, 'What does love mean?'
Here are some of their answers:

Love is when Mummy gives Daddy the best piece of chicken.
Elaine, age 5

Love is when Mummy sees Daddy smelly and sweaty and still says he is handsomer than Robert Redford.
Chris, age 7

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

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

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

Karen, age 7

Love is when Mummy 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

And finally, 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 neighbor 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 neighbor, the little boy said, 'Nothing, I just helped him cry'
