Childhood is a gift...the innocence, enthusiasm, literally jumping up and down in excitement, belly laughs, genuine smiles, giving hearts, it's how we all should be. I actually envy it. What a better place this world would be if after we talked to someone for just a few minutes, that person was now considered our new "best friend". Children are so uninhibited, unassuming, and non-judgmental. Sure they have their crazy moments, but don't we all? Childhood should be cherished...and for those people out there who can't appreciate that...well, I feel sorry for them.
*****This is a comment I wrote in response to a great post written by Kelly @ Don Mills Diva. I was reminded of this gift at church today as I watched my son (and the other two-year-olds in his nursery class) enthusiastically do every single action to one of their favorite Primary songs, "Popcorn Popping", with smiling eyes and joyful little voices. Of course, I couldn't help but sing and do the actions along with them. :)
