Love is…

This was sent to me this morning and if it doesn’t make you crack a smile, then you need a hug:

From “Dear Annie” today – a series of quotes from children about what love means to them….

-Love is when a girl puts on perfume and a boy puts on shaving cologne, and they go out and smell each other.

-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.

-When someone loves you, the way they say your name is different.  You know that your name is safe in their mouth.

-Love is when you go out to eat and you give somebody all of your French fries without making them give you any of theirs.

-Love is when someone hurts you.  And you get so mad but you don’t yell at them because you know it would hurt their feelings.

-Love is when Mommy makes coffee for my daddy and she takes a sip before giving it to him to make sure it tastes OK.

-Love is what’s in the room with you at Christmas if you stop opening the presents and listen.

-Love is when you tell someone something bad about yourself and you’re scared they won’t love you anymore.  Bt then you get surprised because they not only still love you, they love you even more.

-Love is when you tell a guy you like his shirt, then he wears it every day.

-My mommy loves me more than anybody.  You don’t see anyone else kissing me to sleep every night.

-Love is when Mommy gives Daddy the best piece of chicken.

-Love is when mommy sees Daddy smelly and sweaty, and still says he is handsomer than Robert Redford.

-Love is when a puppy licks your face, even after you left him alone all day.

-You shouldn’t say I love you unless you mean it.  But if you mean it, you should say it a lot.  People forget.

-Love is what makes you smile even when you are tired.
