Compassionate Parents

This world can be a hard, cruel place..how blessed are the little ones who have compassionate parents.
The death of the goldfish is a tragedy. Maybe the child forgot to feed it, so there is guilt. Goldfish also have a finite lifespan.

Rain on a birthday party day.....Ahh. A chance to be creative and adaptable. What fun!
Wish I'd had Aish when I was a young parent. Glad I have Aish now that I'm an old Granny!
