A Child's Vision

This morning I missed my turn and went back to ask for directions.

I went into a little neighborhood store and the clerk directed me to a local customer.

She remarked “Don’t I know you?”  I told her that happens to me all the time, and that it is a good way for me to make new friends.

She had just given her granddaughter, (I am guessing she was bout eight years old), the change from their transaction.

A man in need walked past carrying his food, and on his way out the door, the granddaughter offered him her change.

I was so moved by this sweet and unselfish gesture.

I know I saw the Universe of Love in action in this little girl.

I know she will be successful in everything she wants to do in life.

For me to have had the privilege of seeing her awareness and her innocence and her service was profoundly beautiful.

I am so blessed to have seen this.
