Today I am very grateful to be the mother of a truly compassionate child.
While out shopping this afternoon, it made Lily (my 10 yr. old) tear up when she noticed someone that was obviously in a far worse position that anyone we know.
She has a heart that is so big and full of love and tenderness that I know she will go on to do wonderful things with her life.
I wish everyone had 1/2 the caring spirit that she does. In fact, I wish I did! She makes me want to be a better person.
I wouldn't trade her for anything (even on the days she tries my patience).
If only we could see people through the eyes of a 10 year old. Maybe we would be a bit kinder, a bit gentler and a little less critical.
