My new friend
Quebec City, QC, July 2011
About this photo: We're celebrating big all week long. If you've got a picture somewhere that suggests "big", we hope you'll head over here and share it.There's something reaffirming about watching kids with animals. They seem to communicate far better with our furry friends than we do. Maybe we can learn something from the innocence of childhood. Maybe it'll help us become better adults.
I watched this child talk to the horse for at least a couple of minutes. The horse, in turn, seemed to appreciate the attention as it waited for the next set of tourists to board the caleche behind him. It was a sweet moment that once again reminded me that small kindnesses continue to matter, and some kids seem to understand that innately.
Your turn: What can we learn from a child?
