A few days back my 6 year old insisted to join me for the morning prayers. She would get up take a bath and join me for the morning prayers.
Whilst I did my usual daily prayers and thanked Lord for whatever he has given me. She would repeat word by word after me and to end with she added
“Thank you God for giving us the beautiful world.”
She repeated it again and this time she added, “Hey Daddy ! Why don’t you repeat the last line after me.”
Her prayers were real and full of truth and innocence, she was not asking anything but thankful for what God has given us.
That day my daughter taught me very important aspects of life:
- We forget the real joy of life and the abundant things we are blessed with, after all we are the only planet where life exists in the milky way and
- Children’s teach us a lot and act as an eye opener to us. We just need to spend more quality time with them.
Let’s start to stop worrying about petty stuff and be thankful to the Almighty for all that you have been blessed with.
