A Caring Heart


Early this morning we got a phone call.

That right there should be tell you it wasn't good. Not many people call in the early morning.

It turned out not as bad as we thought. A friend up the street had a sick child and needed someone to watch her son for a few minutes while she and her hubby did the switcheroo.  Okay, sure, no problem. My hubby went down to watch her son for about 10 minutes until her hubby got back.

When he got back we got the low-down from hubby. It turns out the sick child was one of Joseph's best friends.

So after finishing breakfast, Joseph announced, "I need a piece of paper."

I wasn't sure what that was about, but he found what he needed and proceeded with his project. A few minutes later, he had finished -- He'd made a get well card for his friend and he wanted to deliver it on the way to school this morning.

Yes, we made sure he had a chance to deliver it to his friend.

After all, a caring heart in a 7 year old boy - now that's a finer thing.
