Joy in Another’s Happiness

IMG_6115
This little girl ran into the bathroom yesterday morning, anxious to tell me some important news. I was half-asleep, and worried by how animated she was. Was something wrong? “Mummy! Exciting news! The Today show rang a lady and she answered and won $30,000! She’s a single mum and needed a new washing machine and vacuum cleaner! She can’t work anymore ’cause she hurt her shoulder. I am so happy for her! Isn’t that the best news?!” I hugged her so tight. It was indeed the best news, not only for that lady, but also for this one. My child has a beautiful heart. She understands that when one of us wins, we all do.

  1. Hehehe! What a darling! I happened to see that on TV this morning while I was waiting in medical rooms. I never have the TV on in the mornings at home so it is a coincidence that I happened to see the one segment that touched your daughter so much!
