A Game Of Peek A Boo
By Joseph J. Mazzella • July 22, 2013
I was in a local Goodwill store today looking for a shirt for my son. As I was glancing at the clothing racks I noticed a young mother with her two daughters. The youngest was barely a year old and sat patiently in the shopping cart while her mother browsed through the racks. Her oldest was about 3 years old and had curly, brown hair. When I looked down at her she slipped behind the low hanging shirts, popped back out at me, and laughed. It had been a lot of years since I played peek a boo with my own daughter, but I joined in, hiding behind the shirts when she did and popping back out with her. With each time her laughter grew louder and happier while her baby sister watched us and smiled. After the game I thanked the Mother for letting me play with her beautiful daughters, waved goodbye to the little girls, and headed out the door with my smile wider and my heart lighter.
Isn't it amazing how the littlest things can bring us the greatest joy? Isn't it incredible how the tiniest acts of kindness can make God smile? Isn't it wonderful how the smallest sharing of love can make all of Heaven sing? The truth is it is these small things that make life worth living. It is these tiny acts that make the world a better place. It is this love we share that brings us closer to each other, to Heaven, and to God.
There are so many little things we can do everyday to share our love, to create joy, and to make God smile. A pat on the back can set a spirit soaring. A shared smile can bring another Child of God closer to Heaven. Even a game of peek a boo can help to build a better world. It certainly built one in my heart today. The joy I got from it was passed on to everyone I met. It rippled out in a wave of happiness that will go on forever. May you fill all your days with kind little things then. May you live well, laugh much, and love always.
