Chicken Soup for the Soul

'Soon after her brother was born, little Sachi began to ask her parents to leave her alone with the new baby.

They worried that like most four-year-olds, she might feel jealous and want to hit or shake him, so they said no.

But she showed no signs of jealoousy. She treated the baby with kindness and her pleas to be left alone with him became more urgent. They decided to allow it.

Elated, she went into the baby's room and shut the door, but it opened a crack---enough for her curious parents to peek in and listen.

They saw little Sachi walk quietly up to her baby brother, put her face close to his and say quietly, 'Baby, tell me what God feels like. I'm starting to forget.'
