Loving and Caring for Others
My 2-year old daughter is the most caring, the most sensitive, and the sweetest little girl I’ve ever seen!
Yesterday, as I was cooking honey lemon chicken for lunch, some oil splattered on my wrist and Ayesha heard me scream from the kitchen. A few seconds later, she ran towards the kitchen to check on me and asked, “You okay, mommy?”
The little girl looked really worried! So funny!
When I told her that my wrist was red and a little painful, she grabbed my hand and kissed my wrist. Then she brightened up and said, “No more painful, mommy? Yehey!”
After thanking her, she happily walked away and continued watching TV in the living room.
What a sweet, caring little girl!
One time, while changing the pillow cases and bed sheets inside the bedroom, she asked, “I’ll help you, mommy?”
“No, baby. It’s ok. Mommy can do this,” I said. But she insisted on helping me dress up the pillows, so I just let her.
This afternoon, I also caught her teaching our helper how to play games in the iPod. I heard her saying, “Tap this one, click this, look at this…” while guiding Manang’s index finger on the screen.
On many occasions, when her dad, brother or I was not feeling well, she would always give us a massage, kiss us, hug us and ask us if we felt better after doing all these things. Of course, we would just say “the pain was gone” because we didn’t want to let her down.
Needless to say, I am grateful for my little girl’s ability to express love and care towards others.
Will she be a teacher or a nurse when she grows up? To me, it doesn’t really matter. She can be what she wants to be as long as she lives a life that’s pleasing to the Lord.
