LittleFolks

One of my favorite songs is titled "Little Folks," written and recorded by Charlie Daniels.

This time of year always heightens my awareness of the need to model the best of human attributes for those young people whose eyes perpetually follow us.  

Attributes like... 
  • Honesty
  • Humility
  • Patience
  • Positivity
  • Courage
  • Kindness
  • Gratefulness
  • Respectfulness
  • Love (expressed and manifested)
  • Forgiveness (offered and accepted)
  • Faithfulness (to each other and to the God of our understanding)
While this season is known for giving, what better gifts could we give the "little folks" in our lives than to teach them the ways of right living, as embodied in those attributes above?

"Little folks are people, too; very much like me and you." 
(Per the song referenced at the top of this post.)  

Indeed.  They become us.
