Love is....

  1. LOVE IS ...


    In a survey of 4-8 year olds, kids shared their views on love.


    * "Love is that first feeling you feel before all the bad stuff gets in the way".


    * "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 she says your name is different. You know that your name is safe in her mouth."


    * "Love is when you tell a guy you like his shirt, then he wears it everyday."


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


    * "Love is when you go out to eat and give somebody most of your French Fries without making them give you any of theirs."


    * "Love is what makes you smile when you're tired."


    * "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."


    * "Love is what's in the room with you at Christmas if you stop opening presents for a minute and look around."


    * "When you tell someone something bad about yourself and you're scared she won't love you anymore. But then you get surprised because not only does she still love you, she loves you even more."


    * "Love is hugging. Love is kissing. Love is saying no."


    * "Love comes from people's hearts, and God made hearts."


    * "Love is like a little old woman and a little old man who are still friends even after they've know each other so well for so long."

    (just a few smiles for your Monday). Cheers, S

    I think that one was my favorite, but they are all so very true. Thanks for putting a bright spot in my day, Sandi.
     
  4. I thought some of them were pretty cute, but I think my fav is "she couldn't bend over and paint her toenails anymore. So my grandfather does it for her all the time".

    I once had a boyfriend paint my toenails - looked like someone had used a paintball gun from 300 feet away! *LMAO* He could never figure out what I was laughing at!!

    Those are great......as they say, "out of the mouths of babes".....

    Wouldn't it be interesting to see what a survey of Cafe members would produce, if each was kept to 35 words or less...

    Yeah, that one was good too....Patrick painted my toenails for me when I was pregnant...both times. I never imagined that they looked like they would have been painted w/a paintball gun...I was so huge I couldn't see them...lol!!! It's probably a good thing I couldn't seem them now that you mention that! :eek:
     
  8. Thanks Sandi...Here are my two favorites:



    * "Love comes from people's hearts, and God made hearts."


    * "Love is like a little old woman and a little old man who are still friends even after they've know each other so well for so long."

    Really put a smile on my face this morning reading through these quotes. Favourite has got to be :

    Jane, the lady in my life, says my name in a variety of ways; sometimes I'm not so sure her mouth is a safe place to be :biggrin:

    This one's got to be my fave. Thanx for sharing these!
     
  12. You ladies must be obsessive with painted toenails :smile:

    I never do it for my wife, so probably I don't qualified as a good lover. I just clipped her toenails when she's pregnant. Those swollen toes were so cute.

    A few weeks ago, when I woke up from a sunday afternoon nap, I found my toenails painted --- by my 7 y.o. girl. :Shocked:

    HOW DO YOU DECIDE WHOM TO MARRY?
    You got to find somebody who likes the same stuff. Like, if you like sports, she should like it that you like sports, and she should keep the chips and dip coming.
    * Alan, age 10

    No person really decides before they grow up who they're going to marry. God decides it all way before, and you get to find out later who you're stuck with.
    * Kirsten, age 10

    WHAT IS THE RIGHT AGE TO GET MARRIED?
    Twenty-three is the best age because you know the person FOREVER by then.
    * Camille, age 10

    No age is good to get married at. You got to be a fool to get married.
    * Freddie, age 6

    HOW CAN A STRANGER TELL IF TWO PEOPLE ARE MARRIED?
    You might have to guess, based on whether they seem to be yelling at the same kids.
    * Derrick, age 8

    WHAT DO YOU THINK YOUR MOM AND DAD HAVE IN COMMON?
    Both don't want any more kids.
    * Lori, age 8

    WHAT DO MOST PEOPLE DO ON A DATE?
    Dates are for having fun, and people should use them to get to know each other. Even boys have something to say if you listen long enough.
    * Lynnette, age 8

    On the first date, they just tell each other lies, and that usually gets them interested enough to go for a second date.
    * Martin, age 10

    WHAT WOULD YOU DO ON A FIRST DATE THAT WAS TURNING SOUR?
    I'd run home and play dead. The next day I would call all the newspapers and make sure they wrote about me in all the dead columns.
    * Craig, age 9

    WHEN IS IT OKAY TO KISS SOMEONE?
    When they're rich.
    * Pam, age 7

    The law says you have to be eighteen, so I wouldn't want to mess with that.
    * Curt, age 7

    The rule goes like this: If you kiss someone, then you should marry them and have kids with them. It's the right thing to do.
    * Howard, age 8

    IS IT BETTER TO BE SINGLE OR MARRIED?
    I don't know which is better, but I'll tell you one thing. I'm never going to have sex with my wife. I don't want to be all grossed out.
    * Theodore, age 8

    It's better for girls to be single but not for boys. Boys need someone to clean up after them.
    * Anita, age 9

    HOW WOULD THE WORLD BE DIFFERENT IF PEOPLE DIDN'T GET MARRIED?
    There sure would be a lot of kids to explain, wouldn't there?
    *Kelvin, age 8

    "And the #1 Favorite is........"

    HOW WOULD YOU MAKE A MARRIAGE WORK?
    Tell your wife that she looks pretty, even if she looks like a truck.
    *Ricky, age 10

    *Tips On Love From Those That Should Know*
    (all questions were answered by kids, age 5-10)

    (Judy,8)

    "Once I'm done with kindergarten, I'm going to find me a wife."
    (Tom,5)


    *** What do most people do on a first date? ***

    "On the first date, they just tell each other lies, and that usually gets them interested enough to go for a second date."
    (Mike, 10)


    *** When is it OK to kiss someone? ***

    "You should never kiss a girl unless you have enough bucks to buy her a big ring and her own VCR, 'cause she'll want to have videos of the wedding."
    (Jim, 10)

    "Never kiss in front of other people. It's a big embarrassing thing if anybody sees you. But if nobody sees you, I might be willing to try it with a handsome boy, but just for a few hours."
    (Kally,9)

    *** The great debate: Is it better to be single or married? ***

    "No one is sure why it happens, but I heard it has something to do with how you smell. That's why perfume and deodorant are so popular."
    (Jan,9)

    "I think you're supposed to get shot with an arrow or something, but the rest of it isn't supposed to be so painful." (Harlen, 8)


    *** On what falling in love is like. ***

    "Like an avalanche where you have to run for your life."
    (Roger, 9)

    (Leo,7)


    *** On the role of good looks in love. ***

    "If you want to be loved by somebody who isn't already in your family, it doesn't hurt to be beautiful."
    (Jeanne, 8)

    "It isn't always just how you look. Look at me. I'm handsome like anything and I haven't got anybody to marry me yet." (Gary, 7)

    "Beauty is skin deep. But how rich you are can last a long time."
    (Christine,9)


    *** Concerning why lovers often hold hands ***

    "They want to make sure their rings don't fall off because they paid good money for them."
    (Dave, 8)


    *** Confidential Opinions About Love ***

    "I'm in favor of love as long as it doesn't happen when 'The Simpsons' is on television."
    (Anita, 6)

    "Love will find you, even if you are trying to hide from it. I have been trying to hide from it since I was five, but the girls keep finding me."
    (Bobby, 8)

    "I'm not rushing into being in love-I'm finding fourth grade hard enough."
    (Regina,10)
