My 3-year-old showed me just how good it feels to give to others when we went to the store for our 'treat day' (Fridays). She picked out her treat, and noticed a little boy asking his mom to buy him a chocolate bar. The little boy's mom told him they only had enough for bread and milk. My daughter turned to me and asked if we could buy the little boy a chocolate bar as well. Of course, there's no way I could deny that request. The smile on her face when she handed the treat to the little boy, whom she didn't even know, almost made me cry right there in the store. Sometimes I think maybe our children should be running the world.

I love it. My children (4) have all began to see the importance of giving. What a way to be inspired.

You're absolutely right. If all politicians and leaders of the world were like your child, there would be universal peace.

We can really learn from children. My prayers for your young child with such a good heart.
