A Child’s Truth

It’s amazing how innocent and truthful the words from a child can be.

When wifey and I were on holiday, the kids stayed over at my parents’ house.   My mum had an old typewriter lying around that she had kept from years ago, not used anymore because it had been superseded by a computer.

However, she has since dusted it off and took it out for the kids.  They LOVE to play with it, feeling the weight as they push down the keys, watching them strike the ribbon, hearing the bell ring at the end of each line.

One day in the holidays, our cheeky 7 year old typed out a little note for my 85 year old Grandmother (her Great Grandmother) who stays with my parents.   She left it in the bathroom for her to find.

My Grandmother recently showed me the note that she now keeps with her.  I read it and my heart smiled…
