When was the last time you talked to a young person? I am talking about a youngster 5 or younger. If ever you need a pick me up coupled with imagination….this is your ticket.
I was honored to have one such conversation this evening. I don’t know what it is about a conversation with a little person but they have such a fresh spirit. You can’t help but smile and be inspired with their enthusiasm for life. They will tell you colorful and wild stories fueled by everyday situations.
During church we have a children’s time and I look forward to it with great anticipation. Some kids sit and fidget while others hang on every word. The kids always make me smile and they are so unpredictable. That is another part of working with kids that is magical. Kids come up with random acts that surprise and delight us.
I am so grateful for the spirit of children. They bring joy and sunshine to any setting. While many of us are battling winter if you need a lift consider finding a couple of children to hang out with. They can add a little sunshine to your day and help melt some of this frost.
I can hear their cheerful screams as they sled down the hill…..wheee!
