What is Love

So I got sick of packing and I decided to read my E-mail. A friend of mine sent me one in which people had asked little kids what they thought love was. And I wanted to share a few with you.
'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.' age8
'When someone loves you, the way they say your name is different.You just know that your name is safe in their mouth.' age4
'Love is what makes you smile when you're tired.' age4
'Love is like a little old woman and a little old man who are still friends even after they know each other so well.' age6
'Love is when Mommy gives Daddy the best piece of chicken.' age5
'I know my older sister loves me because she gives me all her old clothes and has to go out and buy new ones.' age4
'When you love somebody, your eyelashes go up and down and little stars come out of you.' age7
'Love is when Mommy sees Daddy on the toilet and she doesn't think it's gross.' age6
And this last one is love through a childs perspective.....
A four year old child whose next door neighbor was an elderly gentleman. His wife had recently passed away. 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'
