AN OLD SOUL
This is our grand nephew Jared. He will be six next month. Jared is as ornery as the next kid, but there is something especially good about him. We heard a story about Jared last night that describes the kind of kid he is. Their teacher gave each child a package of cakes with two cakes inside. She reached the end of the line and was one package short. The teacher asked the little boy just ahead of the empty handed child if he would share his package. "No way!" the boy exclaimed as he held his package of two cakes tightly. You have probably guessed that Jared stepped forward, walked to the end of the line and shared his package with this last child. Jared's grandmother often refers to Jared as an old soul because he is unusually kind.
