Recently at school, my 10-year-old was given the assignment of answering this question: “What is your purpose in life?” Here’s the answer she wrote out:
I was created by God to serve, love and cheer up others. To give peace, joy, thankfulness, and forgiveness to the world. To give my love, my loyalty, and my life to God. To help others on thier journy to Heaven, to help lift thier burden, to entertain them, to be thier friend, to go with them through good and bad, through hard and easy, through everything they go through. To make them feel as if they are not the only one, like they have someone to trust, someone to hold, someone to look up to. This is my purpose, my dream, my life, my way. Love; the thing that changes.
And that, in her own words, is my sweet Malin.
