A child’s kiss
Set on thy sighing lips, shall make thee glad;
A poor man served by thee, shall make thee rich;
A sick man helped by thee, shall make thee strong;
Thou shalt be served thyself by every sense
Of service which thou renderest. – E.B. Browning
Nothing can change your outlook or mood like a child’s kiss or hug when you least expect it. It’s as refreshing as a cooling breeze on a sweltering beach. Let us all learn from the innocents. May we learn to cast our thoughts and cares on others, where an unexpected act of kindness brings immeasurable joy and comfort. Consider taking a moment from our lofty work to bring the hearty broth of friendship and generosity to the poor, the sick, or the unloved. At the least consider returning an act of love with the same. After all, what kiss of a child doesn’t deserve one in return.
