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?" 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

"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 8

"Love is what makes you smile when you're tired."
Terri ­ age 4

"Love is what's in the room with you at Christmas if you stop opening presents and listen."
Bobby ­ age 5

"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

"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

"Love is when mommy gives daddy the best piece of chicken."
Elaine ­ age 5

"Love is when your puppy licks your face even after you left him alone all day"
Mary Ann ­ age 4

"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 4
