Sharing his sweets
On arriving home he sat at the table and divided up his sweets into piles. A pile for his cousin, his sister, his mum, his dad and himself. He divided out the sweets equally and we all tucked in. We all had 3 sweets each.
I am amazed at this boys generous heart. He loves to share...in fact he is evidence of the joy we receive from giving. I genuinely think he enjoys giving them away more than eating them himself.
As I told M the story later in the day we remarked...'where does he get that characteristic from???'
I pray as he grows older he does not become tainted by this worlds greed and selfishness but continues to be more and more generous.
