Have you ever witnessed two children
fighting over a toy?
Four hands locked in a death grip for the object
of shared desire.
It’s hard to watch.
Intervening might create more of a tug-of-war,
hurt feelings and heighten the struggle to
come away as the victor.
Hold onto that scenario, have you ever
witnessed the opposite interaction?
Two children sitting on the floor playing with toys.
From time to time, one child will show the other child
a special power his toy may possess.
Linger a little longer and you might see them trading
toys, all with ease and calm.
The lessons learned in kindergarten still remain true.
Learn to share.
It can be a difficult lesson for kids and adults.
Share your story.
Don’t withhold what you hold in your hands.
When we share with others, we create connections
and mutual encouragement.
Whose carpet do you want to hang out on?
The one filled with hair pulling or the one that
has open hands?
We can choose to live our lives possessing with
tightly fisted hands.
Or we can realize that all we hold was made
to be passed along.
SHARE YOUR LIFE
