WORDS, SWEET TO THE SOUL.

The moment had arrived. In the middle of all the Christmas gift giving, my daughter excitedly presented me with a package.   It was  the gift she and her two boys had picked out for me. I realized  the importance of the moment so I stopped amidst all the hustle and bustle to focus on the special gift. Pausing for a moment as I began opening the wrapping, I realized my youngest  grandson was trying to get my attention. He had evidently heard these words as he was around other people opening gifts so he said,

“I’ll give you a hint……,”

 

 

We all smiled adoringly into his little sweet face as we thought we would wait  for the hint. But before we could even register  what was happening,  he blurted out, “it’s a necklace!.” Some hint!!

 

Of course his older brother howled  that he had ruined the gift and the surprise.  I was working to overcome seeing his little face crumple as he didn’t understand what he had done wrong. It all turned out fine because there were several things in the box with the necklace hidden underneath so I was able to give the appropriate gasp of surprise.

This little guy’s “hint” has become a source of joy to us.  It’s something we will always remember.  Unwittingly, he “made a memory” for us.  Because it’s one of those cute little comments that remind us of his innocence. And sweetness.  So all we have to do is say to each other at any random moment, “I’ll give you a hint.“ And we immediately smile and have our spirits lifted.

 

It’s true for us today that a good word can “make our day.”  Just like it’s been true for thousands of years.  King Solomon said it in Proverbs:   “Pleasant words are a honeycomb, Sweet to the soul and healing to the bones.”  No matter who the words come from!  But especially when they come from your grandson.
