    Have you held a child's hand lately?

    I just walked into the home, and reached out and held my son's hand. Just 6 years old. Oh man the lightening went through my veins. I supposed I am sensitive. Please hold a child's hand today.

    Yes, Bro. I did and held a most elevating conversation with a thirteen year old girl. Mother was there and was very embarassed  when her daughter said that she was forty one, but the boy said forty five, even worse, but he was correct. No one asked by the way.

    Anyway, I said something really nice about the innocence of children and the mother was very happy. Cool, eh?

    Shoulders are my favourite place to touch people, I feel that I can transmit love better this way... to offer myself. Feels more natural for me. Good on you, Bro. God bless your family.

    Such a profoundly beautiful question indeed.   When I see a beautiful, blessed child, I walk up to him/her & touch his/her hand & smile.  Children are so beautiful & wonderful.   Such innocence & unpretentiousness.  Such beautiful souls untouched as of yet by the corruption & darkness of the world.

    Makes me indescribably happy walking along holding my children's hands (7 and 9). Walking them to school has always been one of my favourite things. The skipping too! And yes, that innocense of energy throug a child's hand...

    The responsibility of teaching them a correct view of the world is a challenge though... I seem to be mystified on a daily basis that humans from all different walks of life, are so convinced that their way of thinking or believing is better/cleaner... when really, all it is is indoctrination. All humans are indoctrinated... it doesn't have to be violent ideology, but anything put onto a blank slate, is a form of indoctrination. Funny people won't see that.

    God bless children!!! The uncluttered mind...

    I hold hands with my grandchildren often, whenever I see them.  The youngest (18 mths) loves doing 'round and round the garden' on her hand too; if you don't know what that is, l'll explain.  All my grandchildren are outwardly loving and they give freely; sensitive and kind and full of smiles.  I only hope they don't lose that as they grow.

      Ann, a true blessing to hear from you, I hope and trust you are well. Just from what you say, I can 100% be sure your grandchildren know love. Let us hope it guides them. Please do explain the "on her hand too"

      It's a spoken rhyme which goes: Round and round the garden, like a teddy bear (index finger circling the palm), one step (finger to tickle the wrist), two step (finger to tickle inside the elbow), tickley under there (under arm or chin).

      The anticipation is amazing.  There is always an 'Again!'.
