Thought du Jour: Like a child

A quote for the day:
"But Jesus called the children to him and said, "Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these." ~Luke 18:16

I love little kids. They have so much joy in everything. They may not always be the most polite, or the smartest, or the friendliest, but they still see the joy in everything. They think McDonald's is a four-star restaurant for goodness' sake. If you think that, you've got to take joy in the little things.

If you're like me, then you know it's impossible to be in a bad mood when you're around little kids. You could be having a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day, but if a little kid comes up to you and gives you a huge hug, or you are holding a baby and they go to sleep on your shoulder, then you can't possibly be upset. A feeling of peace just flows over you, and you get completely relaxed.

It's a feeling that can't be compared to any other.
