Kids

Note to self: Don't try to lose the child in me.

Working at an after school program, I quickly realize how often us adults lose sight of the "child" in us. There are moments where I am either too serious, busy, or afraid of the challenges that lay ahead.

Does anyone know a child who holds grudges for a long time??I think not. I admire a child's ability to adapt to environments and learn new things without being intimidated. Children are constantly amazed at finding new things and are always curious...not usually frightened. They are trustworthy and see the good that people do. Most importantly, they are not prejudiced and are able to make decisions without that component that may blindsight that decision.

Yup, children don't know how lucky they are.

Yep, I can attest to this with my own children.  Thank God they don't hold a grudge against me sometimes. lol  But my brother, he would always hold a grudge, still does to this day.  He has middle child syndrome. : )  Hugs and GBU, Shelly
