sweetest pic ever


OK - So this may look like a silly picture to some of you...even ones with kids. But the story behind the picture tells you of how truly sweet kids are. Josh (the little guy in the middle) had run towards the swings while Sophia (the little girl on the left) was swinging. The adults saw it happen but couldn't move quick enough to stop it so all we could do was scream "NO!" which scared the kids even more. THWACK! Josh went to the ground. Thank God for Hank's product, RubbaMulch. It probably saved a huge head injury because his head hit the ground first - although we knew Josh was more scared than hurt. Sarah (Josh's mom) picked up and try to soothe him and make him feel better and set him down on this bench with his sippy cup to distract him from what had happened. Well, Gavin and Sophia wanted to help make him feel better - and that is what my friend Becca captured in this picture. Look at how motherly Sophia is - talking to Josh and telling him he is okay. And check out Gavin - who gave Josh his train to hold (which is huge in my book) and hugging him so tight - like I do when Gavin gets hurt. The sweet innocence of childhood friends...

Oh if only we could keep that innocence into adulthood the world would be a better place.
