Childlike

I love to watch how children make friends so easily. Tonight we went to a park to watch my niece and nephew-in-law play tennis. While we were there, my other niece and her daughter ( my great-niece ) went over to the play ground. As we were standing there talking... a little girl in a purple sun dress and about 7 years old, came up to me and asked if I would be her friend. I said " Yes, what is your name my new friend?" Without hesitation she said " My name is Rapunzel Taylor". To which I quickly replied " Really my name is Cinderella " , she smiled and said "really?". Then we went on to play for a little while before I had to go.

Yes, we would all do better if we were a little more childlike, a little more willing to accept everyone as they are...a friend that we just haven't met yet! I am grateful to my new friend Rapunzel Taylor for asking me to be her new friend! It made me happy tonight! Good night to all my new friends, and my old friends!
