In the song ,"Thank God for Kids" by the Oak Ridge Boys , the lyrics give us all reason to thank God. If we didn't have children to celebrate life , our life would be "empty".Without children, our house would be quiet , but" empty". Without children's books about Sesame Street , Winnie the Pooh and Mickey Mouse, and the children around to read them to, we would lack the imagination that children have.Children have the best imaginations!!Children have imagination and dreams that are unlimited . And when we are with children , we too can have imagination and dream!! And the smiles of children are like the sunshine. I know that this is true because I have been with this unlimited imagination in children all my life in teaching the primary grades , adopting two little boys and spending "time " with children including my little grand daughter. Children are without a doubt , the closest people to heaven. We may not think so sometimes when they "misbehave" but it seems that this "misbebavior" doesn't last for long. And their questions are what makes "life " exciting". Children never stop asking questions , that's how they learn.We too should keep asking questions and keeping learning. That's what life is about. When we stop asking and stop interacting with others, we "lose out" in life. It is true that those whys,whats,hows,whens, and wheres are important ! When those trusting eyes look right into our eyes , we know that behind those trusting eyes is a kind and loving heart! We have a precious gift in children. Thank God for kids !!!

We've all had people in our lives who have made a positive impact on us. A parent or grandparent, a sibling who was there for us, or maybe even just a guy who shines shoes for a living?
