Oh love

Found the cutest ever list of children's responses to the question "what is love". Brought to us courtesy of Mark Travis.


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...

(1) When my grandma got arthritis, she couldn't bend over and paint her toenails anymore. So my grandpa does it for her now all the time, even when his hands got arthritis too. That's love. Rebecca - age 8
(2) When someone loves you, the way they say your name is different. You just know that your name is safe in their mouths. Billy - age 4
(3) Love is when a girl puts on perfume and a boy puts on shaving cologne and they go out and smell each other. Kari - age 5
(4) 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
(5) Love is what makes you smile when you're tired. Terri - age 4
(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
(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
(8) Love is what's in the room with you at Christmas if you stop opening presents and listen. Bobby - age 7
(9) If you want to learn to love better, you should start with a friend who you hate. Nikka - age 6
(10) Love is when you tell a guy you like his shirt, then he wears it everyday. Noelle - age 7
(11) 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
(12) During my piano recital, I was on stage and I was 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
(13) My mommy loves me more than anybody. You don't see anyone else kissing me to sleep at night. Clare - age 6
(14) Love is when mommy gives daddy the best piece of chicken. Elaine - age 5
(15) Love is when mommy sees daddy smelly and sweaty and still says he is handsomer than Robert Redford. Chris – age 7
(16) Love is when your puppy licks your face even after you left him alone all day. Mary Ann - age 4
(17) When you love somebody, your eyelashes go up and down and little stars come out of you. Karen - age 7
(18) Love is when mommy sees daddy on the toilet and doesn't think it's gross. Mark - age 6
(19) 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 the winner was a 4-year-old child whose next door neighbor was an elderly man who had just lost his wife. When the child saw the man cry, the little boy went over into the man's yard and climbed on the man's lap and just sat there. When the boy's mother asked him what he'd said to the neighbor, the little boy said "Nothing, I just helped him cry."

I personally like 1, 3, 10, 15, and 18.

Alma 32: 23
23 And now, he imparteth his word by angels unto men, yea, not only men but women also. Now this is not all; little children do have words given unto them many times, which confound the wise and the learned.

Website of the day-Extremely random site about a boy who attempts to post pictures of reader submitted emotions. I know, it doesnt make any sense to me either. Eric conveys an emotion.

Hi there Jenna,
Just to give you a heads up, you're probably going to get some more comments on this post: Oh love. I found you when I was out looking for the latest info about making out products, and even though this doesn't relate to making out, I still had to stop and tell you that you're doing a great job. You're about to get some visits from my brother and sister. I told them about your blog so I hope you don't mind.

Howdy Jenna,
I'm impressed with what you wrote here in your Oh love post. I'm a little embarrassed to admit what that I was searching for making out french kissing information, but found you and I'm happy to be here - you have well done with topics of interest to me. I might make a blog that looks like yours but about making out french kissing related stuff, (don't worry I wouldn't try to compete with you). You're doing a great job Jenna.
You got a great thing going... by friend.

Jenna you are a quality blogger and I'm learning some good stuff by being here.

Aloha Jenna,
I'm a visitor from Hawaii and just found your post Oh love. I like it... it's interesting so I decided to read and say hi. Although my interests are mostly about romantic kissing related information right now, your blog got my attention and was a nice change. Thanks for your nice blog Jenna, I think I'll tell my cousin to stop by if that's okay.
~ Aloha ~
