A four-year-old child, whose next door neighbor was an elderly gentleman, who had recently lost his wife.
Upon seeing the man cry, the little boy went into the old gentleman ' s yard, climbed onto his lap, and just sat there.
When his mother asked him what he had said to the neighbor, the little boy just said, ' Nothing, I just helped him cry. '

Teacher Debbie Moon ' s first graders were discussing a picture of a family. One little boy in the picture had a different hair color than the other members. One of her studen ts suggested that he was adopted. A little girl said, ' I know all about adoption, I was adopted.. ' What does it mean to be adopted? ' , asked another child. It means ' , said the girl, ' that you grew in your mommy ' s heart instead of her tummy!

An eye witness account from New York City , on a cold day in December, some years ago:
A little boy, about 10-years-old, was standing before a shoe store on the roadway, barefooted, peering through the window, and shivering with cold.
A lady approached the young boy and said, ' M y, but you ' re in such deep thought staring in that window! '
' I was asking God to give me a pair of shoes, ' was the boy ' s reply.
The lady took him by the hand, went into the store, and asked the clerk to get half a dozen pair of socks for the boy. She then asked if he could give her a basin of water and a towel. He quickly brought them to her. She took the little fellow to the back part of the store and, removing her gloves, knelt down, washed his little feet, and dried them with the towel.
By this time, the clerk had returned with the socks. Placing a pair upon the boy ' s feet, she purchased him a pair of shoes.
She tied up the remaining pairs of socks and gave them to him.. She patted him on the head and said, ' No doubt, you will be more comfortable now. '
As she turned to go, the astonished kid caught her by the hand, and looking up in to her face, with tears in his eyes, asked her. ' Are you God ' s wife? '
