Inspiration replaces age group angst

It can be easy to feel that one connects better with or likes one age group over another.

I was going to be working at a summer camp and knew I should pray about my likes and dislikes. I used to think older girls were harder to connect with because they had so much drama and their conversations were often focused on shallow things that didn’t seem to matter at all. To me, being around older girls was like high school, and I remembered how no one could ever relate to me. I was the oddball out.  

With little kids, though, it was obvious to me that they loved being loving. They were silly and innocent and had that childlike trust I was always drawn to. And when they got mad, they were so quick at forgetting why they were mad and would soon be happy again.
