Lessons from a seven year old

A couple days ago, the girls and I were driving to go see my mom.  I made the comment that we haven't seen her in awhile.  Sharon immediately replied, "Well, I guess that's because you don't need her help anymore."

I find it amazing that at the age of seven, Sharon understands my transformation better than some adults who have known me for years.  I often think that she doesn't remember that Mommy used to need help running all of her errands and completing her household chores.  I guess that's not the case at all.

Even though Sharon was only six when began learning how to do things independently, I can't help but think that that she won't ever take the little things in life for granted.  I think that there is a lot that we can learn from her attitude and outlook.


  1. Empowering women through medicine. A nice lesson for the girls to be learning, I think.

  2. That seven year old is wise beyond her years. I will always remember her saying that she wanted to be a "giver" when she grew up. Each day, she gives us love and thoughts to cherish.

  3. She is an amazing little girl. Everyday she says something that makes my heart smile. I'm one lucky lady.
