Joy puts the smile and giggles back into a child and fills their heart. Children are so sensitive to emotions! When we look at a child with love they respond to that so easily! Some children have been hurt so much, but they are looking for that joy that we can offer them. We need to find a way past the hurt through continuous effort in touching their hearts with affection, care, attention and time! Some people don't offer their children time, not even 10 minutes, and they are starved for it! Wether it is selfishness, forgetfulness or being too busy, we should spare at least a little time with them. We need to be in the physical presence of our children and touch them. Let them know that they are loved. So slow down and don't just tell your children that you love them, but prove it through your daily actions. Day in and out, shower them with your attention and light their way with the light that joy can offer them. It doesn't take a lot, but it does require a conscious effort each day to show that child that they are a joy to you!
