EmPOWERed

If I could have any superpower, I always wanted it to be one of these: 1) teleportation, 2) super brain, or 3) flight. But I remember once, while playing with Gabe, I asked him what superpowers he would like to have, he said,

"I want to fly!" then changed it to "I want to be able to eat everything!" after which I asked him the wisdom of that. Then he finally said, "Okay, I want to love everyone."

When I asked why, he said, "because it's hard to play with them if I don't." Imagine that, my imagination was trumped by a 5-year-old kid. Love is a SUPERPOWER, isn't it?

It surprises me what the very young can teach us if we just try to listen.
