A week ago, after the Sunday service at the Self-Realization Fellowship temple in Encinitas, my friend Laurie Baum was looking for two little chocolate-loving souls she knew from Sunday School who would appreciate the little transparent bags of Christmas goodies she had assembled to commit random acts of chocolate. Spotting their parents, she approached the family as they exited the temple. When Laurie offered the three-year-old boy a bag, he lit up like a Christmas tree. Accepting it joyfully, he raised his arms to the heavens and exclaimed, “This is the goodest day of my life!”
It doesn’t take much—a chocolate treat, a warm smile, a genuine compliment—to make someone’s day the goodest it can be! The best part is, the gooder you make someone’s day, the gooder you make your own!
KIDS SAY THE PROFOUNDEST THINGS!
