Innocence. Purity of heart. Unvitiated minds. Where do we find these qualities in abundance? In children, of course! Who else, but these little people, who fill our world with happiness and laughter, and give us hopes for a better tomorrow!
Today, as I sat wondering about the topic to write on, my 6 year old nephew plonked himself by my side and asked me what I was up to. I showed him my blog, and told him how I wrote essays on different subjects. However, it being nearly the end of the day, I was at my wits end coming up with a topic. He promptly began shooting off things that came to his mind; things that I could write about. Being the helpful little guy that he is, he also narrated a story his teacher told him in school, and suggested I write it on my blog!
My overwhelmed heart couldn’t wrap itself around this little fellow! I was drenched to the core with his outpouring of love through this very simple gesture. For, I very well know, had I asked someone else to suggest some topics to write on, they would have asked me to leave them in peace.
How I wish children never grew up to be the careless, heartless,conniving adults that we all metamorphose into, once we reach that age. How I wish the innocence, the affection and the unconditional love they have in abundance heightens with time! Wouldn’t the world be a much happier place to be in?
