Children Already Know
This reminds me of a plaque I have that reads, ‘While we try to teach our children all about life, our children teach us what Life is all about.’
I was sitting on the couch watching the French Open semifinals. She was seated next to me waiting for our departure to get a journal for the summer for her to record her experiences. In the mean time, she was writing and drawing.
Suddenly, she handed me a piece of paper.
Her – “Here. This is all it takes to be human.”
She had designed it in sort of a pyramid. At the bottom were Love and Peace. Above that Happy. Then Calm, Wow and Brave.
Nine years old and she has a life philosophy.
Children are amazing.
