One night, my cousin 4-year old cousin JM, went to our house to make tambay. I was half-sleep then ’cause I was not feeling well that time. My mom asked my 4-year old cousin JM, if he’s praying to God every night:
JM: nag-ppray ako kay Jesus. Ikaw Tita?
My mom: oo naman.
JM: ano pinagppray mo?
My Mom: bigyan niya akong pera. Ikaw? Ano pinagppray mo kay Jesus?
JM: Mabuhay tayong lahat ng matagal.
Pure. unadulterated. selfless.
I suddenly felt the urge to hug JM right after. That’s one of the best lines I’ve ever heard from a little child.
