Children are the enlightened spiritual beings who have only recently made their transition from the spirit world. They haven’t yet been corrupted by the ridiculous thing called duty that adults burden themselves with. They know some awesome things that we don’t!
Forget, for a moment, your prejudice and when an eight year old asks for a favour, smugly say,”And what will I get in exchange?”
Only an eight year old can fling his arms around your neck and smother your cheek with kisses till it is decidedly wet and sticky. A kid, you see, has no fear of that which terrifies most grown ups. Love.
Aren’t little boy gifts Awesome?
