I love kids. They are amazing in every way. They are innocent, sometimes fearless, caring, forgiving and just over all happy. There is a reason why the Savior taught to be like children. The other day we went to a ward activity at the park. There were several kids just playing and having a good time. But, there was one little boy who had a small handicap. The playground was conducive to him, so he was able to play with other kids. But I noticed that while I saw a child that was different, the other children saw him as just another kid regardless. They played with him like they would any other. We must have eyes of little children...seeing no faults and only loving those around us regardless. Sometimes it's hard. We get angry and the responsibilities we carry can over power our child-like eyes. Sometimes we just need to be like little children, not petty stressed filled adults. Now, someone has to pay the bills and take care of the kids and make dinner, but we can do these things while being Christ like. Children are sweet and joyful...for the most part. We should all try a little harder to be like little children. (:

"If we have a heart to learn and a willingness to follow the example of children, their divine attributes can hold a key to unlocking our own spiritual growth." -Jean Stevens
