My lil Marvell is really such a darling, he is always filled with kind loving words and when he speaks, he will put you on cloud nine........so the story goes.
I appeared in his classroom, waved at him, asking permission from his teacher to speak to Marvell for a while, then i told this," Marvell, please wait for me after school, papa will pick you up later and take you for lunch ya" i could see him beaming with joy.(Usually, i don't pick Marvell up, he got this nanny sending him to the after school care)
As soon as he saw me waiting at the gate, he charged at me, giving me tight tight hug and say thank you profusely, while in the car, he leaned his head against my arm and saying this to me," Papa, thank you for giving me surprise,thank you for picking me up, thank you for taking me for lunch, i really appreciate and you are the greatest papa," enough said.
You see, even a majestic, gigantic and robust building can be demolished in just a few seconds but to build another building of such scales will take months, if not even years and just like the hurtful and rude words we say could demean, destroy and crush just another person,especially the little ones. My 10 year old Marvell Ung Wew, so proud of him.
Have you ever heard this before," You stupid boy" "You useless gump" or " Nothing you do could be of any good" said by a parent to a child?
Have a great weekend guys and god bless.
P/S : Kind words go a long way
