Happiness and Children

Keep me away from the wisdom which does not cry, the philosophy which does not laugh and the greatness which does not bow before children.              ~ Kahlil Gibran

happiness, children, be happy

Flying his way into happiness

So recently the Rev had a wonderful opportunity I got to meet my new nephew, this is my third and he’s absolutely adorable.  So for today what I decided to find some resources on keeping and making children happy.  Even if you had a hard childhood, we all had those moments of carefree bliss in our childhood.   It is my hope for my little niece that she has as much of that, for as long as possible.  So here are some resources, some readings on that very topic.  Have a happy day my friends ~ Rev Kane
