being child-like

Last night, I had a heart of a child. I bought a happy feet slip-ons for just $10 which was supposed to be $15. When I got home, I immediately climbed to my bed and slipped my feet on them. And, I felt so comfy and happy! 😀 I just don’t want to remove them from my feet! I wish I could wear them everywhere! 

Every time I would go home to Bacolod, my cousin, Jonah who grew up really close with me, would be very happy already even if we just eat at McDonald’s East or go to Robinson’s to play some arcade games. 

Simple things could already make a child happy. A red balloon. A dirty ice cream. A walk in the park. 

I remembered a blog of a friend, whom her daughter hugged her and sweetly said the love words even after she got scolded. Isn’t it sweet? I told myself, I wish we, adults could be like a child sometimes – to be easy in being forgiving to those who have hurt us, whoever’s fault it is. 

As much as a child learns from us, the older ones. We too, sometimes, need to learn from a child.  

Matthew 18: 2 – 4
Jesus called a little child to him and put the child among them. Then he said, “I tell you the truth, unless you turn from your sins and become like little children, you will never get into the Kingdom of Heaven. So anyone who becomes as humble as this little child is the greatest in the Kingdom of Heaven…”

We really don’t need to get a happy feet to become like little children. Our heart is enough. 🙂
