Children Stories

Some folks remember Art Linkletter’s old TV show Kids Say the Darndest Things. Art would interview children and everyone was amazed at what the youngsters would say! Their responses most often reflected the pure innocence of the child. Here are some stories I can share:

One day I was sitting on the couch reading and my son Charlie, age 3, was playing on the floor. He stopped what he was doing, looked at me and declared matter-of-factly, “The pinchers came in and pulled me out. Then they put me on the white road.”

I knew exactly what he was referring to. His birth had been a forceps delivery, very quick and easy, and he was soon wrapped in a blanket and placed in the little wheeled cart that had white sheets to nestle the newborn in, and he was rolled away. I responded, “Oh yes! And did it hurt?” (I was curious to know) He said no, and went on with his play.

My daughter Maja was a six year old in the fall of 1979 when I was busy planning a trip to California to attend the Harvest Class followed by Liberty’s Seminar at Camelot. About two weeks before I was to depart I entered Maja’s bedroom as she was just waking up. She was excited to tell me that she had been with the Goddess of Liberty in her dreams! She was exuberant! I asked Maja if she wanted to go with me to Camelot and she said Yes! So, we made the trip together.

One day our family was gathered around the dining table eating supper. Five year old Charlie was not eating something on his plate (I cannot remember what.) I encouraged him to try it, and he answered me, “My green angel says I don’t have to eat it!”

Perhaps other readers have more stories of children and their special insights…
