Truth from Children

Calendar Wisdom on a lighter note. An email is floating around that made me chuckle and think. We have been pondering with Proverbs but here are a couple “truths that little children learned:”

*When your Mom is mad at your Dad, don’t let her brush your hair (do I hear Amen!),

*Don’t sneeze when someone is cutting your hair (my five year daughter and her friend found a pair of scissors and cut her hair straight down the center of her head. To even it out we had to cut the sides short and all the women at the market asked if she was a boy – lesson learned),

*You can’t hide a piece of broccoli in a glass of milk (in fact, “honesty is the best policy” has always seemed truth),

*if your sister hits you, don’t hit her back. They always Catch the second person (My last mouth washing was playing hide and seek with my sister who was hiding in the closet and squeeled when I found her. When I claimed we were just playing, her squeeling trumped my innocent look as I was “oldest and should know better”),    * but a fitting final wisdom, The best place to be when you’re sad is Grandma’s lap.”

Little truths often reflect great life lessons, even as does Proverbs. Grandma may not be the nicest or even the closest person as I never knew my grandparents but it is for sure true that the best place to be when you’re sad is in the hands of God! Blessings on your day.
