We took advantage of the good weather and free day at the Denver Zoo on Wednesday! We had such a great time.
And now, a story about him.....
This precious little lady and his husband were trying to see the otters so I moved aside so they could watch the animal fun. Aiden turned around and saw this sweet old lady and began to laugh and tell her about what the otters were doing. She begin to laugh at him and say “Ja, ja”. By now I knew that she didn’t understand a word he was saying, but she was having as much fun as he was. He kept laughing and turning to her, telling her everything that the otters were doing and next thing I knew she was laughing even more and telling him everything she was seeing - in German! This didn’t even phase Aiden. They continued their conversation for quite some time, with her husband looking on and chuckling also. The fact that they didn’t understand each others language just didn’t seem to matter to either, because, right before my eyes...the two of them...this 4 year old African child and this beautiful older German woman enjoyed the universal connection of smiles and laughter right there in Denver, Colorado. It was the cutest thing I have seen and may we all continue to learn from our children to embrace the beauty of God’s Creation - the most glorious of all - each other!!!
