A few days back, as my daughter and I were on one of our beautiful late afternoon walks, we realized that we had forgotten to take our gate remote. Since we live in a gated community, we either need to punch the gate code or use the remote to enter back through the gate. We avoid having to punch the code to maintain safety with COVID. We found ourselves stuck waiting outside the gate for a car or someone to enter.
Just then, we saw a couple of 5-or 6-year-old kids walking towards the gate. One little girl fearlessly punched the code and held the gate door for us to enter. And soon as we entered, she started to run, saying in the cutest voice that she was 5 years old and her Dad had asked her to do something magical!
My daughter and I were amazed at the little girl’s innocence and love. We learned how intuitive and magical this act was for her! She didn’t think she just did it! That love, kindness, and goodness are inherent in each of us and is the basis of our existence.
Let us not let our minds hold us back from experiencing the magic of love and kindness.❤️
