    At SouthernMoss' side forever!
    Slow down for three minutes to read this. It is so worth it.
    Touching words from the mouths of babes.

    A group of professional people posed this question to a group of 4 to 8
    year-olds, "What does love mean?" Some of 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. So my grandfather does it for her
    all the time, even when his hands got arthritis too. That's love."
    Rebecca- age 8

    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 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
    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 (Wow!)

    "If you want to learn to love better, you should start with
    a friend who you hate,"
    Nikka - age 6 (we need a few million more Nikka's on this planet)

    "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

    "During my piano recital, I was on a 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
    Cindy - age 8

    "My mommy loves me more than anybody . You don't see anyone
    else kissing me to sleep at night."
    Clare - 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

    "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 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

    And the final one -- 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."
