Innocence

In Matthew 18:4, the Savior counsels that "whosoever therefore shall humble himself as this little child, the same is greatest in the kingdom of heaven."  There are so many ways that little children demonstrate their greatness--so many ways they show their innocence and humility.

Sophi has a new best friend.  She lives just behind our house and they can walk across both back yards to visit each other.  This friend comes over pretty much every day during the summer.  She is the cutest thing ever.  They play together extremely well.  For the past few weeks, we've felt like we have another daughter.

Tonight at dinner, Sophi said something about being adopted.  Her friend's jaw practically dropped.  Her eyes bugged out.  "You're adopted?!?"  Sophi mentioned that Lexi and Cali (also at the table) were adopted too.  "They're adopted too?!?"  She had no idea.

What a beautiful world it would be if we could all look at each other as just people.  I was amazed by this little girl's simple example of acceptance and love.

A silly picture of their "breakfast for dinner."
