Firstly i’d like to apologise for the 5 month absence. I took some time off to finish my degree and travel before beginning my Masters in 2 weeks (EEK!). I also only post when I feel inspired and it turns out I haven’t been feeling that inspired lately. There is so much bad in the world that there seems to be a focus placed on that rather than the good which has left me feeling a little deflated. Don’t get me wrong, there are moments that make me appreciate how great the world is but I currently feel they are overruled by negativity. However, you can always rely on a child to brighten up your day.
I have been following Family Fizz on YouTube for a couple years now. They are a family of vegans who vlog their daily lives with an aim to inject happiness and positivity into their viewers lives and they do a pretty good job of it too. This morning I had the joy in watching their 5 year old daughters birthday vlog. Now, I know what you’re thinking another video of a spoilt child opening a never ending supply of presents. Incorrect.
When little Sienna was asked what she wanted for her birthday her response was “I want to give toys to charity because I have everything I need.” So, that’s exactly what they did. The family went on a shopping spree in Toys R Us and filled up two trolleys worth of toys to donate to children who are less fortunate than themselves. What 5 year old do you know that would rather give than receive hey?
The video brought tears to my eyes because it’s just so beautiful to see how well raised this precious 5 year old girl is. So selfless, so kind and just so grateful for everything she has.
I’m sure Darren and Georgie (parents) will never see this post but if you’re reading this well done. You have restored my faith in parenting in the 21st century.
