Truth & Wisdom from the Mouths of Babes

Posted May 21st, 2012 by

Children are the most precious beings on earth — and they say the most special things.

On a recent visit, my two little sweethearts, wandering around my office looking for things to get into,
discovered the proof copy of Gather at the Table on my credenza.

Julian picked up the book and looked at it quizzically.

After a ponderous moment, he said:

“This is you Shama?” (Shama is my grandma name)

Intrigued, Violet came to his side to have a look… “This your book?”

I explained that, “Yes, that is me and this is my book… I wrote it.” 

In turn, they each remarked:

“What are you doing at the beach?”

“Can we go to the beach with you next time?”

There is nothing like the benefit of a child’s innocent wisdom.
