My Ramblings

Last weekend my 9 year old and I went to help out at a local ministry church that provides some very much needed services and such to the needy in our area. I felt so very blessed to have even had the privilege to meet these wonderful people and to have the opportunity to serve them. Well, my 9 year old helped out with the clothes and toys. We went out for lunch afterward to discuss what we did that morning. To my surprise he tells me "mom, I really did not know that there REALLY ARE kids that don't even have ONE toy, or food, or new clothes." Apparently he thought that when we told him these things and how he needed to be thankful for what he has that we were making it all up. Then he followed this conversation with "Mom, I really would like to go help out every month when you go. And I want to go through my toys and get the unbroken ones to bring to the kids that don't have any at all". You talk about making a mother proud. It just brought tears to my eyes to hear my 9 year old say these things. This is something that I think every child should experience. Not only to make them more thankful for what they have...but to really show them what it means to serve others.
