Curiosity! It’s More Than Just Asking A Question

Curiosity! It’s More Than Just Asking A Question

One of my favorite stories involves my youngest son being asked “how old are you?” He said, “six, and how hold are you?” The gentleman answered, “57”. The group of adults laughed and commented how great it was for him to ask the question with such honesty and true curiosity.
