A 4-yr. old child, whose next door neighbor was an elderly gentleman who had recently lost his wife, went over to see him. Upon seeing the man cry, the little boy went into the old gentleman's yard, climbed onto his lap, and just sat there. When his mother asked him what he had said to the neighbor, the little boy replied, "Nothing, I just helped him cry."

Teacher Debbie Moon's 1st graders were discussing a picture of a family. One little boy in the picture had a different hair color than the other members. One of her students suggested that he was adopted. A little girl said, "I know all about adoption, I was adopted." Another child asked "What does it mean to be adopted?" "It means," said the girl, "that you grew in your mommy's heart instead of her tummy!"

On my way home one day, I stopped to watch a Little League baseball game that was being played in a park near my home. As I sat down behind the bench on the 1st base line, I asked one of the boys what the score was. "We're behind 14 to 0", he answered with a smile. "Really," I said, "I have to say you don't look very discouraged." "Discouraged?", the boy asked with a puzzled look on his face...."Why should we be discouraged? We haven't been up to bat yet."

How can one not love children?

A child's logic often leaves me speechless and forces me to look at things in a different light. I was trying to explain to my youngest Grand Daughter about my disability. I said "I have no feeling in my feet", she looked at my face, then my feet for a minute and said " I'll help you ". I asked how and she said "I'll tell you when your feet should feel happy or sad".

Sweet. The best one I ever heard was a little girl in a Sunday school class.
The teacher had them make a mother's day card for their mom and write a Bible verse inside.
The little girl picked the Bible verse...
Thou shalt not commit adultery.

Smart girl, wonder if she gave dad the same advice for Fathe's Day? Kids usually want to keep both parents.

Hopefully.
Some selfish ones might want two sets of parents for extra gifts, but I hope not.

If we go down, we go down fighting for the next generation to live free. It's worth it. Our ancestors did it for us.

Doesn't your hair turn orangy when you have scurvy? Asking for a friend.

No, my brown hair (tinted with platinum) turns 'orangy' when the sunlight filters through a window and turns it that way.
