A few weeks ago, we were watering the grass outside. I straightened the hose for my daughter before stepping back inside and had taken a few steps when I heard her yell. I immediately stepped back in surprise. She quickly rushed to save this little insect, telling me I had overturned the insect and it couldn’t move. I immediately got a leaf and carefully placed the insect so that it could stand back up, but it still struggled to be on the grass. Then my daughter asked me to offer my hand for the insect to climb on saying she doesn’t like insects on her skin. As I turned her request down, I saw her extending her hand to help. It was amazing to see her kindness taking over her hesitation about having the insect on her skin. The insect held on to her fingers like a newborn holds tightly onto the finger. Blessings and grace all around.
Kindness helps one overcome fear.
