Have you ever noticed how natural it seems to be for a small child to find joy in life? With just a little encouragement on our part–a reassuring smile, a hug, or a calm word–she is ready to face the world and hunt down its joy.
Or perhaps the joy comes from an act of love: smiling at Sister or rubbing Daddy’s feet.
Either way, the simple pleasures of childhood are worth treasuring. The joy of children deserves our blessing…and even our imitation.
