|Three Bears and Us at Build-A-Bear Workshop|
And my daughter? She's six, inside a store she utterly love...Did you expect anything less of her? Of course not! As expected, she pulled the "me, me" ammo on me when she got the chance but counteracting her childish wiles and insinuations with a firm explanation and reiterating the reason why we were there easily nipped further attempts. She's getting it. I have planted the seeds of philanthropy in her mind and core values. I hope it stays with her until she's older.
I'm starting her early.
I myself, had been a recipient of charity not just once but countless times. It's good to be able to pay it forward and teach it to my own child. Have you paid it forward lately?
...Faith, hope and Charity; but the greatest of these is Charity.
-1 Corinthians 13:13 KJV
