Joy of a child

I have never met a child that was so outgoing and happy as my daughter. Yesterday we went to get her haircut and I sat and watched as she sat in her lifted seat while the stylist went to work. The lady had wrapped her neck with some kind of paper before wrapping her with the cover. My daughter asked,” Why are you putting toilet paper around my neck?” The stylist laughed and explained what it was for. The entire time her hair was being worked on my daughter had her laughing. The stylist kept saying how cute and funny she was and the entire time my daughter had a huge smile on her face. As she finished up the stylist told her that she was done and started to remove the cover and my daughter says “wait”, “I want my dad to see,” so she turns the chair for my approval. Both girls had beaming smiles on their faces and she asked, ” how does it look daddy?” I started tearing up but managed to squeak out that she looked beautiful. I praised God as I sat in that chair that my wife and I through God are leading her down the right path. We teach our daughter to encourage and uplift, but I believe that God ingrained it in her when He created her. I also believe that more often than not, she is teaching us. Thank you God for showing us how to love. Thank you for blessing our daughter with a kind and loving heart. Thank you for the gift of our beautiful child and giving us the sight to see you working through her. Amen
