Spend a day with children, and you will learn a lot about acceptance, love, and generosity!
Children don’t look at how much money you have, the colour of your skin, or anything else- they will accept you for who you are. My heart melts when I see children at the park play with each other. These children come from different parts of the world and different backgrounds, yet the outer appearance never matters to them- they just want someone to play with.
Children don’t hate, they don’t discriminate – they just love. Whenever a child is hurt, it’s beautiful to see other children concerned for that child. Children feel the pain of other children; likewise they embrace the happiness of others.
Children give, give, and give some more! It’s special to witness children give what little they have to their friends. Their automatic sense is to share with others, so that others don’t feel left out. I always smile when I see children sharing their snacks and their toys with one another, and what amazes me the most is that they do it without any hesitation.
Being a parent has softened my heart and opened my eyes to what we really need in this world- Acceptance, Love, & Generosity!
