from the mouth of babes

Tonight, after a family dinner, I begged my little nephew to let me take a picture of him in his new pajamas - he looked so adorable. I pretended to be sulky and sad when he wouldn't let me, hoping it would work.  A short time later he came over to me, and said sweetly "Are you happy?... I love you Aunty, be happy."

It's funny; all the self help books, theories and meditations in the world, trying to teach us adults how to live in the moment - when all you really need is love... and to spend some time with a child.  They know how it all works.

Bless that little boy. If we have someone that loves us, then we are doing ok I think.
