Compassion

My daughter has spent most of her life thinking about #1. Even when she is helping the other kids, its usually to benefit herself.

But these last few weeks she has gotten into the giving spirit. She has spent hours holed up in her room drawing pictures, writing letters, and making wrapping paper for her friends and family as Christmas gifts. She even scoured her room for toys and trinkets she was willing to part with. Her gift to me was a spider ring leftover from Halloween and a beautifully drawn portrait of our family.

It was so nice to see new traits in my daughter; compassion and generosity.
