I’m learning more about human nature. There are things I didn’t know about people before that I am discovering recently.
Did you know we could let ourselves be covered in some of the nastiest substances known to man and not even flinch?
Did you know we could feel such a need to abandon everything else and run to help a crying child?
Did you know that we could find such joy in another’s smile?
Did you know we could willingly not sleep to care for someone else?
Did you know that you could spend an hour just rocking and snuggling a sleeping child and not care that there are other things to be done?
Did you know you could look at a child and feel such a swelling in your heart, that it makes your eyes well up and those prickles start behind your nose?
Did you know we could do that?
I didn’t know we could do that.
