A Child's Happiness

When I came home after running errands this afternoon, there was a group of little girls sitting outside. They came rushing up to my car, trying to sell something for school (I assume, it could have been a fundraiser for almost anything). I wasn't interested in whatever it was that they were selling, so I told them "no thanks." They then asked me if I wanted to give them a tip. I said sure and handed them a dollar. Just a dollar.

They jumped up in the air, so excited! $2.50! We've made $2.50 now! They did a little dance and went back to looking for customers.

Wouldn't it be nice to be so happy about $2.50?

Children have the amazing ability to make us reevaluate life.

i am sure that if we were able to be happy about small things that happens to us-we would be much more happy...
