You wouldn't believe it, but one lollipop can make 3 people happy.
Last sunday, when my family was having lunch at the basement of Raffles City, the waitress came and gave Little D a lollipop. I was not pleased, as I dont encourage my children to eat lollipops. Other candies - ok, but not lollipops, coz they stay too long in the mouth - I hate dental visits and their bills.
Half way during the meal, Little D asked me if she could have the lollipop. "NO" was the reply - "not until you finish your lunch". At another table, there was a little girl, aged about 2 who was fussing. Her parents tried to get her to sit down, but she refused. Then they told her to look at little D who was sitting and eating. Reluctantly, she sat. She had her eyes on our table and was waving to S and Little D, every few minutes.
After our lunch, I noticed that the little girl was starting to fuss again. I told Little D : "See that little girl. I think she is feeling sad. Would you like to make her happy by giving her this lollipop?"
Little D thought for a long time, but did nothing, except hold on tight to her precious lollipop. As we were leaving the restaurant, Little D ran up to the little girl and gave her the lollipop. We were surprised at her action. We thanked her for sharing, and she was really happy about the whole thing. At the end, the little girl was happy, Little D was happy, and the happiest person was ME!!
