This afternoon, my sister was sitting sad and lost.
When I asked her multiple times, she still didn’t respond.
My 3 yo nephew or her son, who was in her lap, I turned to him.
Told him, “Tell you Mom to smile.”
Do you know what he responded?
“I want watermelon!”
Wow. So cute. That is the level I want to get to in my life.
Here’s something I learnt from him:
- My sis told me that he was already nudging her to stop being so sad. He always says, “First, you smile.“
- He was not attached to his Mom’s emotions. He loves her, wanted her to smile. But didn’t get upset when she did.
- He knew what he wanted 🙂
- Didn’t get unhappy when he didn’t get the watermelon.
- His love is not conditional when his Mom is smiling only. Love IS he.
So, my question to you is: Do you want watermelon?
